Redeye's Snapshots are a series of skill sharing workshops, offering quick introductions to new creative ideas and techniques.

Join us for a 30 minute demonstration from fine-art photographer Scott Hunter, providing insight into exploring this traditional printing technique from your own home without the need for a darkroom. In this introduction to Cyanotype printing, you will gain understanding into mixing chemistry, coating papers, selecting objects, and exposing the prints.

Redeye's Rethink Sessions aim to help photographers and artists navigate and adapt to the COVID-19 crisis; to reprioritise, and find new ideas and income during the pandemic and beyond. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed our daily lives. Moving forwards we know how effectively we can collectively adapt and reprioritise; should we and how we can apply this to the climate crisis?

For the next Rethink Session Phil Korbel, social entrepreneur and co-founder of  The Carbon Literacy Project, will join the discussion. We will look at how artists can get more actively involved; make their own arts practice carbon neutral; and use visual communication skills to spread the message. Can we make a positive impact on the planet an integral part of this ‘new normal’?
