Workshops in analogue photo techniques

At the festival center we invite you to test and develop your photographic skills with a number of workshops that celebrate photography and old school photo techniques – from cyanotypes to wet plate and polaroid transfer. ⁠The workshops are open for all and you can book your seat directly online.

From cyanotypes to polaroids

Learn how to do beautiful cyanotypes, an old analogue photographic technique. In this 3-hour course, you will be introduced to all stages of the technique and have the opportunity to try it out with simple tools. ⁠The workshop will be conducted by Barbara Katzin and Charlotte Siewartz from Fotografi på Godsbanen in Aarhus and takes place 15 and 16 June.

We also host a workshop exploring the practice of polaroid transfer in which a short introduction to Polaroid’s techniques are included, after which the participants themselves try the technique and its possibilities.⁠ The workshop is organised by Sille Juline Høghly Petersen, paper conservator and artist herself. The workshop takes place in the tipi tents at the festival center 16 June.

The magic of wet plate photography

On 15 and 16 June you have a rare chance to get an introduction to wet plate photography! Explore the roots of photography and delve into the magic of the 19th century technique of wet plate photography with the professional photographer Henrik Wichmann.⁠ By the end of the workshop you get your own print home with you.
