The Independent AIR will be teaching a free sunprint-workshop for kids at The Independent Forest on May 28th from 2-5pm. Make your own sunprint from flowers and leaves. It is easy and fun, and everyone can join. There will be lemonade and pancakes made on the bonfire, and beer for the adults.
Sunprinting is based on the cyanotype process, which has been used by artists since its development in the 19th century. Objects that eclipse the sun’s light will show up in white, with the rest of the paper turning a vibrant Prussian Blue.
The Independent AIR tilbyder gratis sol-foto workshop i Voel skoven /The Independent Skov den 28. maj fra kl. 14 - 17. Lav dit eget sol-foto med blomster, blade og planter fra skoven. Det er nemt og sjovt, og alle kan deltage. Der vil være saftevand og bålpandekager, og øl til de voksne.
Sol-fotos er baseret på Cyanotype teknikken, som har været brugt af kunstnere siden det 19. århundrede. Objekter placeres på det UV-følsomme papir og laver hvide aftryk mens resten af papiret får en dyb blå farve.
