The chemigram is a simple painterly process which can be applied in the darkroom using darkroom chemicals and resistant materials such as Vaseline. They can often seem like images from another world, and often have a very psychedelic feel. During the course, you will learn how to create your own chemigrams using the traditional darkroom at the Folk House, using other techniques such as photograms and printmaking. This taster evening is a brief exploration into the chemigram and all it's possibilities.
