Emerging artist Amanda Rataj takes participants back in time with the delicate and historical process of Albumen printing, a process that was popular in the late 1800s. This workshop includes a brief historical introduction to albumen, and opportunities to create your own albumen prints. Participants will leave the workshop confident to work with this process independently.

Amanda Rataj is a Toronto-based artist and writer whose practice is concerned with the transitory and ephemeral nature of people and things. Looking to antiquated photographic technology and material processes to articulate these themes, her work explores the boundaries of the photographic print. Amanda teaches the albumen printing workshop at Gallery 44, and has taught with other community groups such as Lakeshore Arts and the Toronto District School Board.
