20th March 2022: Cyanotype photography, Channel Festival Felixstowe

I was invited by Pier Projects Art Agency CIC to facilitate a children’s Cyanotype photography workshop, as part of the inaugural Channel Festival. The festival was based in Felixstowe on the Spring Equinox weekend. Inspired by this, and my own arts practice, I led a workshop to explore and celebrate the natural coastal elements – sunlight, seawater and beach materials, such as pebbles and sand

The workshop was open to 11-16 year olds and was based at the Level Two Youth Project and on the beach. The children coated their papers in our pop-up darkroom (an adapted art room cupboard!) and developed prints in the sunshine, using natural materials, and washed in seawater
