The East Gippsland Art Gallery Creative Kids program is proud to present a Cyanotype Sun Printing workshop for primary school aged children.

Inspired by the works of Rachel Mounsey one of our current exhibitions, this workshop will focus on taking beautiful found natural objects like leaves, sticks and flowers, and placing them in a considered design onto special cyanotype paper. Then with the use of the suns uv rays, the found objects will create beautiful silhouetted images onto paper.

Cyanotype is an old photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints.

Art smocks are encouraged and budding artists should also bring a drink bottle. A fruit snack is provided. Supported by Uniting Care Gippsland, all workshops are free and places are limited
