In the Darkroom

Black and White Photography for Printmakers

Description

Spread over two consecutive Saturdays, this workshop focusses on 35mm film photography and darkroom processes, using analogue cameras and working in a black and white darkroom. Participants will explore the ins-and-outs of manual analogue cameras, how to correctly expose and develop traditional 35mm film and work in the darkroom to process and print from their negatives to archival exhibition standards.

Aimed at printmakers, this course will also teach participants how to integrate analogue photography into photomechanical print processes, such as etching and silkscreen, through the making of enlarged film positives.

This course will re-engage the participants with traditional film photography and maybe even with the cameras they have forgotten about or inherited from their families. It is as much an introduction to analogue photography for newcomers as well as a refresher for lapsed photographers wanting to return to darkroom days of years gone by.

Graphene-Based Future Textiles

Description

The world’s first two-dimensional (2D) substance, graphene, has exceptional mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties. Thus, Graphene and graphene-like 2D materials are considered promising for developing next generation, smart, intelligent and highly functional clothing. Multifunctional wearable e-textiles have great potential for healthcare, sportswear, fitness, space, and military applications. The present electroconductive textiles based on metals, however, are pricey, not scalable, and not ecologically benign. Graphene is used in many different applications, but graphene-based e-textiles are of relevance for wearable electronics applications, particularly for personalised healthcare. In this course, we will cover the use of graphene in future multifunctional e-textiles. 

Who is it for?

This course is designed around an non-expert audience; and is suited to prospective research students, industry professionals from fashion and textiles or enthusiasts on sustainability.

Sustainable Textile Course

Description

The Textiles industry is the second largest polluter of the environment after oil industry. The Textiles industry has significant environmental impacts that contribute to climate change. The movement to shift industrial practices in the fashion and textile industries toward more sustainable ones has recently emerged as a prominent topic of discussion not only in academic research but also in public discourse. Sustainable textiles nurture a new level of system understanding and a shift from linear (take, make, dispose) to circular thinking. As a result, it has evolved into a more responsible approach with the goal of creating a system that can be sustained indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility.

This course explores the textile and fashion industry, with an emphasis on environmentally friendly fibres, fabrics, techniques, fashion trends, products, and innovation. This course will explore how to make sensible changes in textile consumption, such as recycling, upcycling, and shifting consumer preferences, to reduce landfill waste when purchasing clothing. By the end of the course, participants will be able to make more sustainable decisions about textiles manufacturing.
