Event Description

The developing technologies of photography and film were used to capture some of the key moments and the spirit of the jubilee celebrations of 1897. This workshop will explore the ways in which camera-less photographers created the first photographic images in the mid-1800s. Under the guidance of artist Virginie Litzler, you will look at the techniques of photogram and cyanotype photography, produced by exposing photographic paper to light.

Starting at Kensington Palace, you will view historic photography in the Victoria Revealed exhibition, before choosing items from the palace, plants, handling collection items and designs to use in your final prints. In the afternoon you will transfer to the dark room at the American University in London (on Ansdell Street, off High Street Kensington just 10 minutes walk from the palace) and create your own incredible photograms.

Open to all levels of ability, no experience necessary. All materials and equipment provided.

This event includes light refreshments and entry to Kensington Palace.
