How to get here?
My studio is located at Wilhelminenhofstraße 83 - 85 in 12459 Berlin. Building 59 is at the back of the area by the water and you have to go all the way up to the top floor. Here is a map of the complex:
Or follow the directions on Google Maps . And don't be afraid to call me if you can't find my studio: +49 176/827 99 237
This is what the building looks like. The glass door at the maim entrance is open and my studio is at the top.
What should I bring?
I'll provide a large selection of photographic templates and objects for exposure. You are welcome to bring your own objects and templates with you.
I'll provide paper in DIN A4 format (21 x 29.7 cm). If you want to expose larger formats, you can bring paper up to a maximum of DIN A3 or 30 x 40 cm: Hahnemühle Nostalgie 190 g (my recommendation) or other paper (150 - 300 g). Colored paper can also produce interesting results.
Will there be a lunch break?
In addition to the five-hour workshop we'll have a one-hour lunch break. You can decide to bring your own food and eat in the studio or eat out. There is a good Arabic takeaway and a Vietnamese restaurant nearby.
Can I expose my own photos as a blue print?
Yes. Your photos and templates must be printed out on tracing paper or film. Tracing paper is cheaper and just as good. The motifs must be b+w and inverted, ie. you need a negative! The size ratio is 1:1 (a DIN A4 template results in a DIN A4 picture, etc.).
In a copy shop you should ask for the printout to be as opaque as possible (like for screen printing). You can get very good quality and prices at Trigger Copy or Centralstation, for example.
Is the photo chemistry toxic?
The photochemistry is non-toxic to humans. In high concentrations, the chemistry can be harmful to aquatic organisms. Rinsing water should therefore not be disposed of down the drain, but at the BSR ’s pollutant collection points. Private households can hand in small amounts (up to 20 kg) free of charge.
Where does the workshop take place?
My studio with a beautiful view of the Spree is an inspiring place for the workshops. It is located in Schöneweide and is part of a heritage-listed industrial complex.
Upon request, the workshops can also take place at your home, at an event location of your choice, or as an open-air event in and around Berlin.
How long does a workshop last?
A workshop lasts 2 to 5 hours, depending on your wishes and content. You can also book a two-day intensive course.
Is the workshop suitable for children?
The short workshops are suitable for children aged 6 and over. The five-hour workshop and the two-day course are suitable for children aged 12 and over when accompanied by an adult.
Can I buy a gift voucher?
If you have booked a workshop for a fixed date, I can send you a voucher for it so that you can give it away. Unfortunately, this is not possible without a fixed date.
