This workshop combines physics, art and chemistry with a unique opportunity to make your favourite small object into a one-of-a-kind laser produced hologram.

  • Learn the art of making real 3D holograms using an actual laser
  • Bring a suitable object and make your own hologram!
  • Exhibition and talks on different Hologram types and processes
  • Take your framed hologram home with you
  • Each session lasts approx. 1.5 hours
This workshop will be hosted by Liza Read of Growing Art Partnerships. Liza is an artist who creates holograms, collaging them with glass, printed materials and wood. Her artworks intrigue, excite and aim to make us investigate our societal relationship with technology. Read lives and works in Cambridge, England. www.lizaread.com
Liza will be joined by Iñaki Berguiristain, one of the few remaining classical Holographers in the UK with over 25 years experience making 3D laser photographs. His Essex based studio is one of the most sophisticated holographic labs in the UK, and he focuses on multi-colour analogue art holography. www.displayhologram.co.uk

Suitable objects
The object you bring to make into a hologram must be small, bright and solid, so that it doesn’t move at all during exposure. Suitable examples would be bright keys, coins or jewellery. The object must be stable and fit within an area of 100mm x 105mm.

A session can be attended by a family where one member is the active participant and the others watch the process and explore the hologram displays. Children must be over the age of 10 years and escorted by an adult.
