Today I participated in an Alternative Processes Workshop instructed by my tutor Professor Kelley Wilder, Director of the Photographic History Research Centre at the De Montfort University, Leicester, UK. The workshop took place at the Photography Centre which is located at the basement of the Portland Building.
During the workshop I learned how to make cyanotypes, argyrotypes and photograms. The making process included coating, exposure, developing and fixing, washing, drying and pressing of prints.
