This fall BNC is offering Dance and Photography Workshops for the public at the Anvil Centre.

Workshops:

The Photogram (19+)


Join Body Narrative Collective in transforming the studio into a photographic darkroom for a workshop on the Photogram. A photogram is a photographic process that does not require a camera. Arranging object(s) and/or people on light-sensitive paper creates photograms.  Chemistry then fixes exposed papers to create a permanent image. Participants will get to keep photogram(s) made using cyanotype, a blue-toned iron-based, paper.  Please bring in objects of variable translucency, negatives and/or printed transparencies that you would like to compose your image with. The workshop will also include group collaborations to create larger compositions on mural sized black & white (silver-based) photographic paper.

Movement and Long Exposure Photography (ages 13-Adult)


Join Body Narratives Collective for an inspiring afternoon of movement, collaboration and photography. Starting with a fun physical warm-up, participants will prepare their bodies to move and see space as a canvas. We will introduce camera settings for long exposure photography.  After learning the basics of painting and drawing with light techniques, participants will practice to create intriguing collaborative images using hand-held lights. The workshop will culminate with a slide show review of images generated. Feel free to bring your own light toys & tools, DSLR camera (not required), and/or costumes.  Please wear comfortable clothing for movement.
