Photogram Zine Workshop and Volume III Release Party Presented by Femme Fotale
Join Femme Fotale for a three-part workshop on Saturday, September 24th from 2 – 6pm! The release party for Volume III of their periodical photo book, featuring the work of over 60 female-identifying photographers, will follow from 6 – 10pm.
In part one, we will discuss how Femme Fotale started, why it’s important to promote women artists, and the women photographers who inspire us.
During part two, we will teach you how to make Photograms in the darkroom. A Photogram is a photographic image made by placing objects directly on a light sensitive surface. For this activity, we encourage you to bring any important materials or objects to use in your photogram! Anything that blocks light, is translucent, or is semi translucent works well for a photogram.
And lastly, we will make small zines in part three! Zines are created by physically cutting and gluing text and images together onto a master flat for photocopying. The end product is usually folded and stapled. Zines can be printed and bound in any manner. Please bring any special materials or photos you would like to incorporate into your small zine.
Cost of the three-part workshop is $20.00. All proceeds from the workshop will go toward furthering Femme Fotale’s endeavors to support women photographers. This event is open to everyone! To register, click here.
Volume III Release Party
Please join us after the workshop for our Volume III release party from 6 – 10pm in Art Intersection’s Photographic Arts Lab. Volume III focuses on analog and alternative processes, and features work from over 60 women artists from all over the world. We will be showcasing a selection of works from Volume III among the equipment that makes alternative and analog artwork possible! Volume I, II and III will be available to purchase at our reception.
We love and appreciate all the support and cannot wait to spend time with everyone!
About Femme Fotale
