Photography Workshops

Lumen Printing

With Claire Maxfield



What is this process?

This is a camera-less early photography technique invented by Fox Talbot using sunlight as a reactor with natural materials to make exciting images on coated paper.


How will a Lumen Print workshop benefit your students?

A fun and creative workshop that will add value to the National Curriculum Studies in Art, Science, Geography & Natural History.


What is the framework of the Workshop?

I can offer the workshop as an after school session lasting for one hour to a group of 10 students. An introduction of the technique and a display of examples will be followed by an initial group ideas planning session then practical image making. Alternatively it can be adapted to fit your timetabled curriculum for Art or Science, and extend over several sessions to create a project.


What are the Costs?

The afterschool workshop can be offered to students at a cost of £16 each per session. For any other requirement we can discuss your needs and supply a quotation.
