In this 3 hour workshop with photographic artist Catriona Gray, you'll learn in a small group how to make creative and surprising images using light-sensitive paper, photographic chemicals and household products such as toothpaste, masking tape, Marmite, face cream, oil and more! Call it photographic painting, mark-making, goop-wielding, whatever you like! Use paintbrushes, sponges, cloths, rollers, spray bottles or your fingers.

Throughout the class, Catriona will guide you and a small group of fellow participants as you delve into the world of photographic painting and mark-making. Don't worry if you're new to this process—the warm and uplifting teaching style will alleviate any fears and provide you with the support and guidance you need.

The workshop will provide a structured and enjoyable environment where you can explore your creativity and experiment with different materials and techniques. You'll gain hands-on experience in using light-sensitive paper and photographic chemicals, learning how to create stunning and unexpected effects through the power of experimentation. Along the way, you'll discover the joy of combining photography and painting, unlocking a new realm of artistic expression.

By the end of the workshop, you'll leave with a collection of your own unique creations, each one a testament to your newfound skills and creativity.
