04 Nov “Plantography” – Creating images with plant ink

15th October 2017 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
55 Rue Glesener
1631 Luxembourg


The workshop ‘Plantography’ is about creating images with plant ink.planthography_workshopkvrancken_e2a0406
The Anthotype process uses vegetables like cabbage, beetroots and other plants to create inks that change colors when exposed to sun or other reacting agents (acid/basic solvents like lemon or baking soda).

This process is not only beautiful, but is also environmentally friendly. All the ingredients are natural and can be found locally and there are no synthetic ingredients in the process.

Plantography will spark your curiosity and will help you to understand some basic environmental science principles in a creative way.

Every participant will create an artefact that can then be brought at home.
