About the Course
Sun printing is a primitive form of photography. Using cyanotype chemicals and sunshine you can capture plants and objects onto paper, textiles and silk.
Bridget mainly works with silk and other natural materials creating beautiful sun printed scarves, cushions and bags building up from working on paper, to experimenting with setacolour soleil colour printing depending on which direction you wish to go in.

What's included in the price?
All equipment and materials are provided. For larger silk items there will be an extra charge.
If there are particular plants and objects you wish to capture you will need to bring these with you.
A home made lunch and refreshments are part of the day
We all had a wonderful spent learning the techniques of sun printing. Bridget initially gave us a demonstration and then we were given lots of freedom to create the kind of prints we individually preferred. Bridget was on hand with lots of guidance and inspiration progressing us from printing on paper to material. The weather was wet and windy which made working in natural sun light outside impossible but we used lamps indoors and it did not seem to hamper us all from creating some really lovely pieces to take away with us. We all agreed we would love to do more courses with Bridget and will be signing up for silk painting in the Spring. Two of us travelled from Wiltshire and it was well worth it. A tasty lunch was provided.
Thanks again Bridget.

I took this course on 23 June 2018 - a hot, sunny day so no need for artificial light! Bridget gave clear demonstrations using different qualities of paper, then fabric. After each, we had a go ourselves, varying exposure times to assess results. Then we were let loose to go our own way, with Bridget’s advice and assistance. An excellent introduction to a process that gives loads of scope for further experimentation!
Thank you Bridget.

I did the Sun Printing course on Saturday 24th March 2018. The course was such an enlightening experience for me, being a non artist ( I struggle with a straight line ) everything was clearly explained, Bridget even had a stand for the Sun that failed to appear all day! I achieved 5 pieces of work during the day and was so pleased with the results, I've already put my name down for another course and am starting to make a collection of goods so I can try my hand alone now that I have been given such a wonderful grounding in the art of Sun Printing.
Thanks again Bridget x
