In this workshop participants will learn how to do an emulsion lift with a Polaroid photo. In this process you remove the emulsion layer and attach it to a substrate such as watercolor paper or wood. Each participant will keep their finished emulsion lift photo (recommended to be picked up at a later date after it has dried). You’ll also learn some tricks to modify polaroid photos with hand drawn filters and general exposure tips for Polaroid photos.
