With a background in medical and forensic photography, Kit Martin practices digital photography and alternative processes, primarily cyanotype. Currently working with Dundee Print Studio, she is an accomplished artist offering fun workshops for families at Forgan Arts.

Come and try out an old photographic technique from 1842, using the sun to expose prints. Kit will introduce you to printing cyanotypes in the sun using natural materials, without a

camera! Weather permitting, the workshop includes a short walk to forage for natural resources. All materials are included, although you may choose to bring feathers, foliage, lace etc. for your image

WhimSicAL LusH.

Suzanne is an artist and illustrator based in Dundee,

creating illustrations transformed into stationary, ceramics

and wearable art. Most recently Suzanne was one of the

artists for Dundee's fantastic Oor Wullie Bucket Trail.

Her illustrations have been cast in bronze, forming

Dundee’s Discovery Walk in Slessor Gardens, which are

part of the ongoing Dundee Waterfront Project.

Within the wide range of WhimSicAL LusH creations is a
