Hansfield Educate Together Secondary School, Dublin 2020

Hansfield Educate Together Secondary School collaborated with Artist Mona Atkinson for their Creative Engagement Project 2020. Mona led an online workshop with a class of 5th year students. The students explored the exciting alternative photography process of Cyanotypes. They experimented with a range of mark making techniques to ‘draw with light’ and incorporated the use of some digital media to fuse the old with the new. Students were challenged with the mercurial nature of the Irish weather to estimate the exposure times and enjoyed the thrill of revealing their prints in the water bath at the sink.
