15.10.17 Workshop: Mural PrintingMichael Waite
Inspired by our latest exhibition Photogenic Drawing from artist Justine Varga, we are inviting you into the darkroom for a special workshop.
Working with experienced ACP darkroom tutor Michael Waite, participants will work collaboratively to explore mural printing*. Experimenting with scale, you will work as a team to produce details of your own negatives to explore film grain and abstraction.
Working with a single mural enlarger, this hands-on workshop will have participants collaborating and assisting one another with the printing and processing. Everyone will have the chance to make their own prints, whilst testing and learning from each others experiments
All paper and chemicals supplied
Prerequisites & Requirements
- Black & White processed negatives 35mm or medium format
- No previous experience required
* mural printing is using a horizontally mounted enlarger to project the image onto a wall, and photographic paper that comes in rolls, which allows us to make larger prints than are usually possible with vertical bench-mounted enlargers.

Photogenic Drawing is a free exhibition on display at the Australian Centre for Photography Project Space Gallery from September 8 to October 21 2017.
