Sun Print Bunting Workshop

Come and help make some sun-printed bunting to decorate the street with on the day.

This unique photographic bunting will be created piece by piece by you using a direct printing technique called a cyanotype (or sun print) to create a growing length of bunting throughout the day.Bunting flags will be provided. All we need is you, your design and the sun (I have a replica sun as a back up too, just in case).

Let's see how much bunting we can make in a day!
