About this experience

What is a chemigram?


To create a chemigram, everyday chemicals and substances are creatively coated onto photosensitive paper under daylight or incandescent lighting. The chemicals & substances applied to the paper will begin to react with the paper & act as a resist when dipped in the darkroom chemicals. The paper is then dipped into the developer and fixative in any order to create a variety of results. The developer will encourage areas to turn black, while the fixative will encourage a lighter colour palette.


The final outcomes will vary from psychedelic forms to cubist and abstract shapes.


£25pp including Prosecco.
