GREEN ISLAND CYANOTYPE WORKSHOP
Instructor: Phebea Shen (2019 Green Island Human Rights Arts Festival Co-Curator)
Venue: Green Island White Terror Memorial Park Auditorium
The instructor will take the participants on a tour exploring the exhibition, and whilst learning about the artworks, plants or other objects may be collected from the area. After returning to the auditorium, the instructor will show the participants how to create cyanotype images using the objects. Cyanotype, also known as sun printing, is a printing technique which uses sunlight as a developing or fixative agent. While waiting for the images to develop, elders from the Saturday session will also come to this workshop to share their stories and to talk and interact with the workshop participants about the images they have created.
Each workshop will have openings for 20 participants (some elders that have survived the White Terror will take part in the Saturday session and will count towards the openings available).
Participants under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. The adult-child pair will take part in the workshop together and count as “one participant”, with one set of materials provided to each pair.
One set of materials is provided to each participant/pair. Please follow the instructions provided by the instructor during the workshop. Extra materials will not be available onsite, and materials will not be re-issued in case of misuse by the participants.
The size of each cyanotype image is 10 x 10 cm (participants may bring other object(s) that they wish to use).
Each workshop is approximately 2 hours long. Please stay for the entire session.
Please help with filling out our questionnaire after each workshop.
