Introduction to Cyanotype Print Making

An opportunity to explore the exciting cross-over between printmaking and photography.

Cyanotype is a Victorian printing process that has regained popularity recently with artists and photographers. It is a chance to make your own exciting compositions with a variety of materials.

The paper or material is coated in a light sensitive solution and left in a dark room to dry.  Objects or pre-prepared acetates can then be placed onto the paper and left to expose by UV light for about ten minutes depending on circumstances/what is being used.

Workshops will either be held in the park or the print studio depending on the weather. Gaining inspiration from the seasonal flora and fauna or using objects/acetates of your choice you will produce an original print to take home.

All materials for producing a print will be provided on the day or foraged from the park and hedgerows. If you have some flowers or leaves from your own garden or other interesting shaped items that you would like to work with, you are welcome to bring them along.
