About the Event

Learn the simple art of sun printing with Andy from the DIY Craft Bar and Garyth Bevan... Garyth is a Visual Communicator and Photography lecturer at the Stellenbosch Academy.

We will teach you two EXCITING printing processes using the sun as your main element.

Lumen Print, which is a solar photogram, is a camera-less process using black and white photographic paper and your subject matter. Cyanotype on the other hand, is a process using a combination of two chemicals, which are combined in equal parts. The  result gives a striking image against a background of cyan / blue. This process can be used to make clothes, wall art, decor, scarves and so many more possibilities.

We will also briefly teach you how to transform your lumen prints into something spectacular using photoshop.

No previous experience is required
