Event description

Description

This workshop will explore cyanotypes and will result in the creation of two handmade books by each participant, one to keep and one to form part of the ‘Chernobyl Library’.

You will learn the technique of creating a cyanotype/sun print. Using found materials, collaging photographic transparencies and experimenting with typography, you will create your own set of cyanotype prints. These will be used to create two hand bound books.

Some books will include poetry written by the evacuated people of Pripyat, now living in Slavutych.
