What you'll learn in this photography class:

This class is an introduction to plant-based photographic processes! It will cover anthotypes, chlorophyll printing, lumens, and phytograms. We will meet via online platform once a week for demos and students will then take what they have learned and complete that week’s assignment, returning for critique and a new demo each week. 

  • Anthotypes date back to the 19th century and that intrepid gentleman scientist, Sir John Herschel. An emulsion is made from fresh plant material, coated on paper, and exposed using the sun.
  • Chlorophyll printing is related to anthotype printing, but instead of using plant juices to create an emulsion, an image is created directly on leaves using an object, stencil, or positive transparency.
  • Lumens are camera-less prints made using plant materials in direct contact with black and white silver gelatin photographic papers to create wildly colored and unpredictable prints of great beauty.
  • Phytograms are similar to lumen prints but are made by using an organic and nontoxic chemistry and plants on film. This can then be developed and printed. 

At our wrap up class, we will discuss presentation options and preservation of these ephemeral images.

In the event a student must cancel their registration for a workshop, they may do so any time before and up to 14 days prior to the workshop, and will receive a 100% refund of workshop cost plus any material fees. In the event a student must cancel attendance from a workshop after the registration deadline (14 days prior to the start of the workshop), this will be considered a withdrawal. The workshop costs and materials fees are not refundable but a 20% discount will be given toward another workshop.

There are situations that arise in which a workshop may need to be cancelled. In the event of a cancellation, students will be notified as soon as possible.
