More about this workshop :
More than just producing photographs, the art of sunprinting sheds new ways of seeing by navigating the process of photo-printing into an everyday performance and nature observations. Discovering and sharing the wonderful in the mundane, while embracing the unpredictability in our environment is the most important part of this workshop.
The artist will cover the basic tools and techniques of cyanotype printing in the first session of the workshop. Later, during an urban walk in the city, she will share her approach in collecting specimens and reading weather and environmental considerations in creating photo-stories from found objects. Participants will later return to the gallery to create their own sunprint creations. They are encouraged to join in the photo-sharing conversation with their peers.
At the end of this workshop, participants are hopefully able to make meaningful works of art and reflect on the beauty of the ordinary, in abundance and isolation. Perhaps, inspiring more unusual interaction with everyday items and overlooked parts of our environment.
