Workshop | Magic Beyond the Darkroom

Saturday, June 17

12–4 p.m.

When Pierre Cordier invented chemigrams in 1956, he proclaimed the process to be "most likely the ultimate adventure of gelatin silver bromide!” 

This June, join artist educator Bridget Conn for a refreshing, unique glimpse into a camera-less, film-less photography practice. Students enrolled in this four-hour workshop will learn how to incorporate painting, drawing, and printmaking processes into traditional gelatin-silver, darkroom paper through the chemigram processes. Conn will give an overview of how chemigrams work, demonstrate a variety of tools and methods to explore mark-making, and guide participants through explorations of value, texture, and even color as they make their own works of art. 

Admission is $110 for Taft members, $125 for non-members. Recommended for individuals 18+. This workshop is in partnership with Manifest Drawing Center.


Please note: registration closes for this workshop on June 7!
