A workshop to discover the potentiality of cameraless film-making, starting from the principal of the photogram, a technique made famous by Man Ray. We will work on 16mm print stock, to create a collective film using found objects, torches and the magic of the darkroom. This workshop will be led by Leah Millar.
All film stock and chemistry provided - please wear old clothes!

Hands on Film
A package of six workshops designed to equip you with the core processes involved in photo-chemical film-making. Participants can choose to attend the entire course or alternatively select individual workshops to add a specific skill to their arsenal.
These workshops cover everything from cameraless film-making techniques and eco-film processes through to use of cameras and more specific equipment such as the optical and contact printers.
You can even go the whole way and make your own film from scratch in our DIY film emulsion workshop.
Hands-on Film will run from 23rd April to 18th June, and is open to members and non-members of no.w.here. There will be an opportunity at the end of June to take part in an 'Open Screen' event in no.w.here's project space, showcasing work made by participants of the workshops.
