About this Event

Plastic Era - Sun Print Workshop (Cyanotypes)

Join us for a hands-on workshop where you can learn how to create stunning cyanotype prints using the power of the sun!

After Litter Picking sessions in Worthing we will immerse ourselves on a journey of analysing plastic waste through Cyanotypes (Sun Printing). No previous experience needed!

Cyanotypes are one of the oldest photographic printing processes. To create their distinctive blue images this technique uses UV light or sun exposure with a combination of non-toxic chemicals and found objects.

We will be using this camera-less technique to analyse found plastics and their uses, densities, sizes and materials.

Everything you need is provided but you can bring your own fund plastics and materials such as printed packaging, fruit containers or even organic matter.

Please note that chemicals used are not toxic but may stain your clothes. Bring suitable clothes and/or apron.

This Event is Free!


The work 'Plastic Era' is an ongoing research based project exploring the relationship between humans, non-compostable rubbish, and the earth. This project looks into the use of plastics in our everyday lives. Additionally, this artistic project explores photography mixing experimental and traditional darkroom techniques by analysing extracted polymers through this practice.


This event is sponsored by Worthing & Adur Trust and supported by Marine Conservation Society.
