DIY Pinhole & Botanical Cyanotype Print Workshop
Sandra Borszcz
Part of The Big Draw Festival 2018 Castello Sforzesco
Sat 15 Sep 12:30 - 15:30
The Big Draw is thrilled to return to Milan for the launch of The Big Draw Italia 2018 curated by our partners FABRIANO! Take a journey through time and immerse yourself in the historic surrounds of Castello Sforzesco with these classic photography and image making techniques!

Take is slow...
Build and design your very own pinhole camera
In this age of the instant image, its time to slow down and enjoy the process of making and using your very own camera.
In this workshop you will construct and personalise a pinhole camera and learn how to create your own photos. Once you've made and designed your camera you can take it home and arrange a lovely family portrait - Victorian style!

This is a photographic process that exploits the principle of the camera obscura to reproduce images. 
With paper, cardboard and recycled material you will create a unique working camera!

Sandra will also be leading a Botanical Cyanotype Print workshop - so fingers crossed for sun on the day.... You will have the opportunity to create your prints using found objects from around the castle grounds and draw on and manipulate them for striking effect!
