Add a hand made touch to your Christmas by making some beautiful cyanotype cards and art prints with or lovely Katherine @Braw_Artworks. Use our extensive collection of dried flowers and foliage to create some beautifully delicate wreaths and festive scenes to send, gift or decorate your home.⁣ The cyanotype process is one of the earliest photographic processes and produces a beautiful wintery blue print.
This type of printing is unique in that it is a form of photography that does not require a camera or a darkroom meaning you can replicate what you have learned on the course at home. We’ll start with the basics of how to mix the chemicals, coat your paper and once dry how to expose your images using both daylight and UV lights. There will be plenty of time to experiment and explore different ways to create images including making photograms with plants and flowers, using photographic negatives as well as drawing and mark making onto acetate.
What to bring
All materials will be provided. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own objects with them on the day; fresh or dried plants and flowers or photographic negatives and images that can be traced. Katherine is on hand to advise on what objects will be suitable. You may wish to bring disposable gloves and to wear clothing you don’t mind getting any chemicals on.
