The Light Graffiti workshop is back!

You simply open the shutter on a camera and “paint” in the air with a light source. In this way you capture the movement of the light source on the image.

The kids will participate in every level from start to finish.

Mini Studio

Take a selfie using some of our props - you can either use your own phone or borrow a camera from us.

Sun Print

Create your own pictures using the sun, water and a magic paper!

Negatives and various objects placed on a blue paper are exposed to sunlight and then rinsed in water. Voila, you have a beautiful, lasting photogrammetric and you have also learned something about photography and how the light is leaving its mark on the sensitive material.

Cyanotype is a photographic process from the 1840s.


Even more...
