Cyanotype
1 PLACE REMAINING

The Cyanotype process is an early form of photography discovered in the 1840s and then became a popular method of documenting botanical specimens. Images will be created by laying various objects or organic specimens onto a prepared photosensitive base.  The base when exposed to daylight creates detailed negative shapes which in turn develops into a beautiful Cyan blue colour. Learn how to mix and prepare solutions, and create your Cyanotypes.

This will be an experimental workshop where you will produce several unique images using this light sensitive process. Students are encouraged to bring along a selection of objects to use for printing; feathers, lace, plants, any pressed samples, wire, string, stencils etc. You have the option to decorate a tote bag if you wish.

Tutor will provide materials for this workshop. This cost is included in your course fee. The cost of the tote bag is extra and payable to your tutor on the day.

This workshop is suitable for both beginners and improvers.

A picnic lunch will be provided.

Some of the images above are of work made by students on previous workshops.

Collagraph

Collagraph is a loose term meaning a print made from a collage.

Start by experimenting with a variety of materials that you can use to glue onto your printing plate, usually a piece of card or board. Many materials can be used but usually: paper; paper tape; wood; plastic tape and fabric. Layers of adhesives may also be used such as PVA glue, varnish, and gesso to create mark making. Once your layers are created, your printing plate will then be sealed before using it to print. On advice from the tutor, students will use their own images, design or drawings to make their unique collaged/collagraph plates. These will then be inked up, and using a small etching press, produce A5 printed images onto paper.

Students are requested to bring along their OWN images, designs or drawings to use as inspiration.

Tutor will provide a selection of materials for this workshop. This cost is included in your course fee.
