In this workshop, 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.
