Dorset Cyanotype Printing Workshop

X

Description

Whether you're on holiday or local to the area, my relaxed Cyanotype Printing Workshops are a lovely way to spend a creative couple of hours with friends or family and are suitable for beginners. It's amazing how beautiful this process is and you will go home with a selection of lovely botanical blueprints that would be lovely to frame. This light-sensitive printing technique was used in the 19th century by architects, engineers and scientists to copy drawings. By mixing Ferric Ammonium Citrate and Potassium Ferricyanide with sunlight, beautiful (Prussian) blue images are created. It is a really magical process, leaving people amazed and excited with their results. (Chemicals are odourless and harmless when used under normal conditions). In my workshops, you will learn how to light-sensitise card, place objects on top, such as leaves, grasses and feathers and then expose to light to create a selection of beautiful blue prints. I prefer to use natural light and outdoor space for the workshop so I am reliant on the weather; April through to October is when I like to work. Workshops are run on demand, (2-6 people) and cost £48 per person. ''Angela is so generous with her skills and materials. I learnt so much and enjoyed every minute. I would highly recommend her workshops to anyone, complete beginner to professional artist." Pam Du Val May 2018

Maker


I have been teaching photography to students of all ages in both formal and workshop settings for over 20 years and I like to create a relaxed atmosphere in my workshops; there is no pressure - and the Cyanotype printing process is really fun and rewarding. When I'm not running workshops, I sell my own Cyanotype work - handprinted silk scarves, cards, lampshades and tea-light holders online and also at art fairs.
