Vegetal Light: embodied photography

Booking closed.
Sat 5 Mar
5.00 Hours
From 10:00

Artist Rowan Lear leads a playful and experimental workshop in embodied photography.

Together, we will explore the woodland around Birnam and Dunkeld with cameras, taking inspiration from the multi-sensory world of plants, before steeping and making plant-based photographic developer and processing their films.  


Rowan Lear is an artist and writer, based in Glasgow. Rowan has exhibited in group and solo shows across the UK, Ireland and the USA, most recently a sudden branching at Birnam Arts in 2021.

In 2018, Rowan initiated Planetary Processing, a gathering of artists speculating on materiality and ecology, at The Photographer’s Gallery, London.

Since 2019, Rowan has been a seed librarian at Glasgow Seed Library, Centre for Contemporary Arts, cultivating and caring for a living repository of seeds and stories.

Welcome to Birnam Arts, a boutique multi-purpose arts, conferencing and entertainment venue.


Pop in to the Foyer Cafe for breakfast, grab a delicious coffee with a selection of our homemade baking or enjoy a light lunch whilst browsing on the free WiFi. Wander upstairs to view the latest of our monthly art exhibitions before visiting the world of Beatrix Potter, or the Gift Shop to purchase a special gift for your loved ones or yourself!

My alternative office, my morning cup of coffee, the place where we run our workshops, meet friends, come to concerts ... Without Birnam Arts our community would lose a bit of its soul.
