Venue: Forty Hall
If you enjoy nature and image making, this three-hour course is ideal for you. You will create your own camera–less photographic artwork using plants and botanical specimens found in a tour of the grounds at Forty Hall and
use the power of the sun to create your images.
You will discover a little about the history of the process and become familiar with some of the works of Fox Talbot, the inventor of the process. You will create at least two wonderful designs using plants
