Exeter on Screen: Projecting and Printing Place

My local area theme

What’s on offer?

Exeter On Screen: Projecting and Printing Place’ will be a one day creative workshop at Positive Lights (Sidwell St, Exeter). The workshop will explore how the urban spaces of modern Exeter have been pictured. Using a selection of rare historic magic lantern slides of Exeter, participants will create a range of large and small scale experimental images by exposing light direct onto photosensitive paper in a camera obscura and pop-up dark room. These prints will then be developed further utilising a range of screen printing techniques.
