With „The Sustainable Darkroom“ / Hannah Fletcher
Moderation: Josephine Quaas

London-based artist Hannah Fletcher is the founder of "The Sustainable Darkroom" project, in which she and other artists work with alternative processes of photography and build a research network on sustainable photographic techniques. We will make "chemigrams" from natural materials and photographic paper; abstract, analog "drawings by light."

No photographic training or darkroom is required to participate in the workshop. However, the following materials should be at hand in order to be able to participate right away:

- Photo paper for analogue black and white prints
- 20 g salt
- 5 g vitamin C (available in drugstores)
- Washing soda (available in drugstores)
- 20 to 40 g of picked plants or herbs such as thyme, mint, rosemary, wild onions, bay leaves
- Materials to seal the paper such as honey, cooking oil, Vaseline, clay, flour, wax, paper tape, thread
