During this Introductory workshop participants will use the early photographic process Salt Printing to create one of a kind images. Utilising objects, the sun and some simple chemistry.
The salt print is one of the earliest recorded techniques in fixed photographic history and creates beautiful rich earthy tones with a slight hint of purple.
