Printing with Light

Wednesday 7 August14.00 – 16.00

Explore the unique process of Cyanotype Printing during this Summer Holiday Workshop.

In this workshop, hosted by Newbridge Print, we will learn about the magical process of Cyanotype printing, which translates UV light and shadows into striking prints. We will create constructions using building materials from our exhibition, and then play with light and shadows to create our prints. This workshop will challenge the way you have thought about printmaking – blurring the line between object and image.

What to expect

Artist expertise: Learn from practising printmakers from The Newbridge Print Studio in this small, focused workshop.

Engage with our exhibition: Be inspired and respond to the themes in our exhibition, BUILDING!
