Sunprint Making Workshop 

Led by Candace Makowichuk

Have you ever seen a blue photograph? They were very popular over 130 years ago, when the Edmonton Journal first started publishing. Unlike the current technologically advanced processes, Sunprints are made without cameras. By placing objects on special paper and exposing the paper to sunlight, early photographers created blue images, called cyanotypes or sun prints. 

You can learn this fun activity at one of the many workshops offered on Canada Day in Sir Winston Churchill Square. They take a little longer than a selfie, but the results are amazing!
