Join us to experience the magical cyanotype process. Children will begin with a mindful treasure hunt to gather fallen foliage around the MPavilion, which will then be used to print their cyanotype.

Light falling on photosensitive paper creates the ghost image of the object (foliage) placed on the paper. These images are the antitheses of our quick image saturated digital world. Time passes as the paper is exposed in the sun and as the images develop in water. Australian native foraged foliage connects to a sense of place, while the use of recycled papers helps us understand the value of sustainability.
