Organic Film Processing


In this hands-on workshop participants will learn how to develop 16mm black and white film using organic products such as flowers, coffee, and bee pollen. Students will have the opportunity to shoot their own footage, create home-made organic developers and hand-process their film in Lomo Tanks. Participants will also learn the history of eco-processing and the basics of the photochemical process, as well as be introduced to other artists that incorporates it into their practice. At the end of the workshop students will have hands-on experience and the knowledge to embark on their own eco-processing adventures.
