Cyanotype Printing- Catching Images with Sunlight-School Holiday session

Harness the power of the sun to create beautiful blue prints from found objects.
Age limit 6 -13 years old



About this Event




Harness the power of the sun to create beautiful blue prints from found objects. Make images on paper from found or treasured objects with blue dye and exposure in sunlight.


Cyanotype printing is one of the oldest, simplest, safest & cheapest alternative photographic processes. The process harnesses the power of the sun to easily make beautiful blue prints from objects like leaves, flowers, jewellery, feathers etc. The possibilities are endless. A large selection of objects will be provided but feel free to bring your own. Examples are plant cuttings, flowers, lace, small items of glassware etc.


No prior skills or understanding of photography is required. It is an easy, fun process that produces relatively quick results & work that is finished on the day. It is very hands on and anyone can make great images easily & safely.


Children should bring snacks, lunch & drinks.


Dark Arts Photography and Darkroom is supported by Kickstart Arts as part of the Creative Living Park project - turning the story around.
