There was so much interest in this workshop the first time around, that we are bringing it back by popular demand!
In this workshop, led by filmmaker and educator Greta Snider, we will experiment with plants and other materials printed directly onto 35mm film, in a relatively uncomplicated, daylight process. Equipment and materials include nontoxic developer and fixer (made from salt, Vitamin C, and detergent), a length of 35mm film, and re-usable gloves.
You will need a bucket, a stirring stick (a chopstick for example), a measuring cup for water, a quart or liter plastic container, a cardboard box big enough to cover the bucket overnight, and some plants and leaves! The activities of the workshop can be done indoors or out – if indoors, a plastic tablecloth may be useful.
Please note: We are only able to send materials to participants based in the US due to the high cost of international shipping. If you are based outside of the US and you are able to source your own materials, you can register at the $30 level.
