Class Description

A chemigram is an image created on light sensitive photo paper without the use of a camera. It exposes markings created by different types of resists through the use of photo chemicals. There are hard and soft resists, which create a variety of abstract shapes on the photo paper. Workshop participants will create images with soft resists based on various pantry items such as flour, honey, oil, butter, hot sauce, mustard, salt, toothpaste, shaving cream, spray cooking oil, etc. The list is endless!
