Get ready to embark on a creative adventure with sunprinting! Sunprinting is a photographic
printing process that uses sunlight to create unique, one-of-a-kind prints. The process involves
placing objects or negatives on light-sensitive paper and exposing them to sunlight, which
produces a beautiful, blue-and-white image.
Transport yourself back to the 1800s when pioneers of photography used this technique to
capture images without a camera. With just special paper, objects, and the radiant touch of
sunlight, they brought vivid blue images to life, known as cyanotypes or sun prints.
During this engaging workshop, you’ll learn the basics of experimental sunprinting techniques.
Explore the art of exposure as you experiment with different timings to see how they shape the
final outcome of your prints. Unlock your creativity as you delve into fascinating methods such
as stencil patterns, drawing on transparent film, and even creating captivating sun print collages
by combining multiple prints.
The magic of this technique is that it’s powered by sun and water using natural elements like
leaves, plants, and stones to capture beautiful prints.
The inks that are used in this workshop are non-toxic for humans, animals, and waterways.
Please note: Limited spots available, so secure your place early and immerse yourself in the
captivating world of sunprinting.
