We set out to track down our most mysterious canine companion this October during WOLVES GO WILD, using improvisation, play and storytelling to explore the world of this legendary character of folklore: the wolf.

half-term Cyanotype Gothic Printed Notebooks

10am – 3pm

Ages: 11 – 16 years

To celebrate Halloween and taking inspiration from Landmark’s architecture and gothic stories, you will explore, experiment and create your own blue sun-printed folded notebooks. If it’s not sunny we can still make our very own sun print (cyanotype) images using an Ultraviolet Light Box.

This workshop is highly practical, and you will experiment and explore a 170-year-old photographic printing process with a modern-day twist. It combines gothic story-telling, architectural and other drawing techniques, simple bookmaking and photography.
