About the event

Join artist and creative facilitator Corrie Wingate for a morning of botanical sun printing, using the cyanotype technique.

Whether you are a total beginner or have created sun prints before, the session offers an inspiring space to create, materials and guidance to produce beautiful cyanotype prints.

Working outdoors (weather permitting), participants will be introduced to the sun printing process and will be offered a variety of leaves, foliage and pressed flowers to work with. Participants will also be encouraged to walk around the gardens and collect some other botanicals to make their unique sun prints, which they will be able to take home.

The workshop is open to any age from 7+ up to 99+

Please note that children under 12 should attend with an adult.

About OmVed Gardens:

Since 2017, we have been carefully restoring a previously tarmacked land in Highgate Village, north London, to provide a space to explore food, creativity and ecology for health and climate resilience.

We are a community interest company featuring a permaculture garden, a creative zero-waste kitchen and a growing educational, events and exhibition space. Our aims are to realise our deep entwinement with each other and the more-than-human, through thinking around food, gardening and ecological awareness, to improve diversity at all levels (seed, food, species, participation) and to use creativity and nature-led knowledge to help tackle the climate emergency.
