Using recycled milk containers and drypoint etching needles, we will illustrate the legend of sunken treasure in the Derwent River! Together we will create the legend, then we will all make a print that tells part of the story. We will put the prints together and make a zine. This workshop is run by John Robinson, who also runs Moving Creature Studio — where prints and zines are made.
Toe-tapping fun for everyone! Buzz along with songs such as the “Busy Bees”. Slip and slide along with the “Slow Old Snail”. Sip on “De Nectar” and wrap ourselves in a “Silk Cocoon” before we transform into “Bee..utiful Butterflies”. But “Hey Big Spider” watch out for the “Mosquito”. What a “Buggy Old World” it will bee in the world of MAKEBELIEVE!
Harness the power of the sun to create beautiful blue prints from found objects! Cyanotype printing is one of the oldest photographic print-making processes. Steve Lovegrove will show you how to make images from found or treasured objects by placing them on paper and exposing them to sunlight.
It’s a simple process involving coating sheets of paper with the required chemistry, drying, placing objects in contact with the paper and exposing in sunlight. Development is done in water and no darkroom is required.
Please wear old clothes as the non-toxic chemical that we’ll be using can stain. Gloves will be provided.
