(Blue)print the Moon: PhotoAccess workshop

July 19, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm AEST

Free event.

12-3pm – come along for 15 minutes or stay for an afternoon

Meet at the Lawns, University Avenue, Kambri

Suitable for: All ages

Humankind would never have built the Saturn V rocket or walked on the lunar surface without … blueprints!

In this all-ages, hands-on workshop led by PhotoAccess artist Robert Agostino, explore how blueprints enabled our voyages to the Moon. Learn how to make blueprints, hear the history of this
technique, create a map of the Moon and join a team to produce a life-sized copy of the blueprint for the Apollo 11 lander.

Blueprints are made with the cyanotype process, invented in 1846, which uses the Sun to create brilliant blue and white images. During this workshop, you’ll mix your own cyanotype chemistry, coat and sensitise paper and make exposures.

Using small objects, you’ll design your own A3 sized prints and collaborate with others to create a giant blueprint of the lander or a complete map of the moon.

This is a kid and family-friendly event and all are encouraged to join in! The cyanotype process is completely non-toxic.
