Professor Corinna Wagner is not only an academic in the environmental humanities, combining creative and critical practice, but also a photographer and creative writer. She works in a sustainable darkroom, with traditional processes, and incorporates natural materials such as beeswax, seawater, mulberry paper and reclaimed oil paint.
Her work is part of larger public-facing projects on water and climate change, coasts and edgelands, ruin and rewilding.
In her workshop, we will make cyanotype, a process that uses compounds of iron and ultraviolet light to create a photographic and blue image. We will then use our work to stretch our imagination and inspire us to write narratives in prose and poetry.
All materials included, please bring a handful of greenery, flowers, berries or garden trimmings.
This event is part of FUTURES, a FREE festival of discovery for all ages where you can explore the past, create the present and imagine the future. Agile Rabbit is delivering this event on behalf of the University of Exeter, celebrating and highlighting its vibrant, fascinating, and impactful research.
