Join artist and printmaker Kirstie Williams on this one day workshop where you’ll explore the beautiful technique of cyanotype printing.
Cyanotype is a photographic process which produces cyan-blue prints by using a light box or sunlight. During your time with us, you’ll learn how to coat your own papers with cyanotype solution and use a range of natural materials, plants and found objects to expose onto the paper, creating a series of experimental imagery.
You’ll come away with a small collection of A5 prints onto paper which can be used as framed artworks or cards to give to friends and family.
