Experimental Fun with Cyanotype

Last Saturday, much experimenting and fun was had at the Arthouse trying out the Cyanotype process. Preparing and drying our papers and textiles, before exposing them to the sun and seeing what magic developed. Thanks to Kit Martin for sharing all her knowledge and enthusiasm.

The message is in the medium- Summer school 2nd-5th July

What a brilliant week at the Arthouse. Developing ideas, narratives, printing techniques and friendships. It doesn’t get much better than this!

Walk, Draw, Book and Story

Wonderful work carried out at Off the Rails Arthouse on Saturday. Called “A Walk, A Draw, A Book, A Story”, and led by Dominique Cameron.

Who knew a walk through Ladybank could be so inspiring!

Reflecting on Drawing as Impulse

The final day of Fraser Taylor’s Summer School gave all participants the chance to reflect on all we have achieved individually and as a group. Creativity of course, but also a great deal of encouragement and emotional support.

And as the dust settles, the early summer sun shines through the window and the Arthouse returns to peaceful serenity.
