Participants join Museum experts and leading artists for an evening of behind-the-scenes experiences, shared stories and an opportunity to roll up your sleeves and get creative in one of Adelaide’s most inspiring settings.

In this special Makers at the Museum session, see spectacular scenery and exquisite photography on a guided tour of the National Photographer of the Year exhibition with photographer Paul Atkins, then explore traditional photographic methods in a workshop with the Analogue Laboratory.

Using a collection of original dry glass plate negatives, Analogue Laboratory artists Alex Bishop-Thorpe and Aurelia Carbone will guide you through the process of making collodio-chloride photographic prints. With a range of original artefacts as examples, you will explore the variety of ways photographs were personalised on their way to being treasured mementos, from creating homemade postcards to introducing printed vignettes and messages into the photographs themselves.
