‘Thus we cover the universe with drawings we have lived. These drawings need not be exact. They need only to be tonalised on the mode of our inner space.’ (Gaston Bachelard, 1957)

Take part in this unique opportunity to work with talented artists on a multimedia art project. Collaborate with artists over four exclusive workshops to create, display, and celebrate an original art piece on space and memory.

  • Learn to take photographic images without a camera

  • Construct an immersive installation art piece

  • Take part in your own art exhibition!

  • Make your own art work, yours to take home at the end of the week.

Join the London Alternative Photography Collective at BoM to help create "photographic building materials" using liquid light/cyanotype on surfaces such as stone, glass, wood and metal. These "photographic building materials" will be incorporated into a larger structural installation.

Then work with our resident artists and create your own abstract art pieces. Experiment with inks, acrylics, installation and line to develop your own style of abstract art and turn it into an exhibition like no other.

By the end of the week you will have learnt a variety of creative skills, taken part in an interdisciplinary group show and also have art-work of your own making to take home. You will also have access to our April Sunday events series for lectures, drinks, exhibitions and workshops.


Monday - Photogram Workshop with the London Alternative Photography Collective

Tuesday - Exploring abstraction our resident artists

Wednesday - Cyanotype Workshop with the London Alternative Photography Collective

Thursday - Installation, curate and create an immersive installation as a standing exhibition.


Artists Melanie KingDiego ValenteTina Rowe and Molly Behagg will be leading the workshops, helping you to understand how to use photographic emulsions on three dimensional objects.

Anysia Nefissi works on destruction, abstraction, psyche and form. She interrogates the self and the subject. From drawing to painting, music to writing; her practice is kaleidoscopic.

on Delgado uses organic dyes and inks made from oak. With these he creates intricate and ethereal landscapes whose subject is deeply informed by these materials.

E Zhang works predominantly with interactive installation, videos and performances. Zhang’s interests lie in volition / equilibrium / power relationships / physical theory were the main subject is rendered through her works.

Sergei Zinchuk is driven by his interests in perception, spatial relationships, and feelings of self. His practice strives for transcending embodied experiences through disrupting the expected and mundane interactions and challenging concept of reality.

Classes will be 18:30-20:00 Monday-Thursday
Group exhibition private view, Sunday 2nd April.
