Family Workshop: Cyanotype Printing

For ages 7+
15 August 2024

Join us for a creative sun printing workshop for children aged 7+ and their parent or guardian.

In this session, children will create their own Cyanotype photographic prints and greetings cards.

First, they will forage for materials during a short nature walk, before arranging their plants and flowers in unique compositions on light-sensitive paper. Children will watch the magic as their print turns bright blue in the sunlight, capturing their design permanently.

If parents and guardians want to get involved and make their own prints and greetings cards, additional materials can be purchased as a £6 add-on.

Please bring your own apron and dress in comfortable clothes you don’t mind getting messy!
