Join Kathy for an Impossible Lift Workshop! Learn how to create your very own emulsion lifts and transparencies using Impossible Project film. For $20 we provide the cameras and film, all you need to bring is yourself. If you are new to the Impossible Project film or just new to emulsion lifts, this workshop will give you lots of great new ideas to take your artwork to a different level.


An emulsion lift is when you separate the emulsion, which contains the actual image, from the plastic backing and put it onto another material. You do this by cutting the edges (the “frame”) off the photo and putting the emulsion and plastic into water and gently brush it with a soft paint brush until it separates. Once the emulsion has come off the plastic it is very jellyfish like and you can carefully transfer it to canvas, water colour paper, wood and many other types of materials!

During this workshop, Kathy will show you all the steps and some great techniques for getting the best out of your emulsion lifts. The possibilities are almost endless! Just add imagination.

Check out a few examples of what Kathy and Nicole have done below!
