Family Photography with Dan Fontanelli
Introduce your children to the wonderful world of analogue photography in this family workshop with photographer Dan Fontanelli.
Have fun exploring photography as a family by learning how to make new images from cutting and piecing together negatives. You’ll learn how to use your negatives to create images on cyanotypes; a blue and white photography print that uses special paper and the power of the sun to create lasting photographs. You’ll also try turning your cyanotypes into black and white images and then get to hand-colour them!
This activity is suitable for ages 7–12. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
