Sun Prints2022 - 2021
Dunnett created sun print packets which were sent out to participants over consecutive lockdown summers. They were encouraged to experiment with and have fun with cyanotype-coated paper. Participants could draw or write on acetate and place it along with objects such as leaves, flowers, toys, letters, jewellery, sheer fabrics and lace on the coated paper. They exposed, washed and dried their prints, then photographed and emailed them to Dunnett where she exhibited the prints on Instagram.
Over the summer of 2020 Dunnett was commissioned by Creative Black County as part of the Creative People and Places scheme to run @cbc_sun_prints and worked with families in Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton.
The following year she was commissioned by Live & Local to run @livingroom_sunprints showcasing the work of residents from Mareham le Fen in Lincolnshire including Class F from Mareham le Fen CE Primary School. The work was exhibited on social media. The project was supported by Arts Council England, East Lindsey District Council and Magna Vitae Trust.
