An Afternoon with Horticultural Therapy
Meeting 3: Plant Cyanotype
18.05.2022, 11 am

According to scientific research, working with plants is a very effective form of stress reduction. It boosts self-confidence and is a source of sensory stimulation. We invite you to a series of workshops during which plants will no serve just as a material for bouquets and flower arrangements, but will become an artistic medium used for creating simple graphics, paintings and photographs, etc. Classes for adults and children will be held at the same time, but in separate rooms. We provide materials, refreshments and an interpreter of Ukrainian and Russian.

We will discover the noble photographic technique of the cyanotype.

It is a simple, unique and handcrafted process of creating prints which has survived centuries. Because of how easy it is, it was often used by amateur photographers to produce prints from a negative using the contact method. We will use plants to create our own prints and to form them into compositions on paper and other materials such as pottery, fabric, etc.

Participants: Women and children over 7 years old. Up to 10 adults per workshop.

Duration: 2h

Hosted by: Green Group Association
