One-day Cyanotype workshop – developing ideas

We are delighted to welcome back Kit Martin for a one day cyanotype workshop. This workshop is suitable for those who have worked with cyanotype before.

It will provide you with an opportunity to experiment with printing onto paper and fabric. The number of prints you will make will depend in part on the strength of the sun!

Before attending the workshop, you will reflect on any Cyanotype work you have done think about what designs you would like to focus on during the day.

Option 1 is to make a concertina book. You will print fabric covers and the pages of the book, being given full instructions on pulling all this together.

Option 2 is to work on a final cyanotype piece whether that be on paper or fabric, bringing together your ideas and successes from Previous work. There will also be an opportunity to experiment with toning prints in coffee, tea and other toners.

The workshop is suitable for painters, photographers, textile designers, teachers and anyone else who might be interested in this fascinating, versatile process.

All materials will be provided, but you might want to bring some items to make prints with. e.g. plants, feathers, lace or other items that can be squashed under glass (Kit will bring a selection of things for all to use too).

Also photographic negatives, printed onto acetate or tracing paper (A5 or smaller) are ideal. An apron is recommended. You will be working outdoors for some of the time.
