Info and reservations

January 11, 2023 – Distressed Negatives
We will burn, scratch, crumple memories into works of art. We will experiment on the small surfaces of negatives that reveal magnified new elements. Fascination and frustration work together !
Option: Bring old negatives and/or slides that may be broken, if available of course.

January 25, 2023 – Collage: new world
We will work with our own photographs and add all kinds of found images, colors and materials. This will create new fantastic worlds and characters!
Option: Bring your own photos from home, if possible photos you are in.

February 8, 2023 – Studio Bizarre
Together we will build a crazy photo studio in which we can create amazing portraits afterwards. Everything is possible!

February 22, 2023 – Lumen
Did you know that you only need sun and paper to take pictures? We make images in the sunlight with objects we find around CENTRALE. True magic!

March 8, 2023 – Distressed Negatives
