About this event

Discover the patterns and textures of plants from your garden with this this easy, low-toxicity process. Watch as the chemical reaction takes place in front of your eyes when pre-sensitised paper is exposed to sunlight: turning found foliage into ‘blueprints’ of the living world.

In this 5-hour workshop, participants will explore basic cyanotype techniques including making a solar print on pre-prepared paper before preparing sensitised paper and printing your own. Participants have the option of more extended techniques using provided stencils/digital negatives or working with own drawings on plastic film.

Paper, chemicals and basic safety equipment will be provided with participants encouraged to bring along plant clippings, feathers, fabric and other materials from home. Further details will be emailed upon ticket purchase.
