Learn to mix and apply the chemicals to a variety of surfaces, expose objects and digital negatives, develop and tint the results.
The photocopy transfer workshop will explore the possibilities of collage using the technique of adhesive and solvent transfer transfer. Any printed material such as photocopies, magazines or newspaper may be used to create distinctive works of art on a variety of substrates.
