Develop Workshop: Cyanotype Animation

11:00am, Sun 03 Jul 2022

This event is part of the Develop youth programme which is open to 14 to 24 year olds. Please only sign up if you are within the age bracket. 

Join us on the studio floor where Edd Carr will lead a full-day workshop on how to make an animation from cyanotype prints! 

The workshop will begin by learning how to make digital negatives and printing them on acetate. After that you'll hand print your stills onto cyanotype paper. Once they are dry they will be scanned and made into a short cyanotype animation! 

The workshop will run from 11.00 - 16.00 and all equipment will be provided.
