I was trepidatious to try out an online workshop via Zoom, us artists sometimes find that technology is the opposite end of our spectrum! But I was delighted that we had attendees from the Midlands and here in South London, plus a representative of World Cyanotype Day joined us from Florida! It was interesting that exposure times for paper in the Midlands were about 30% longer than here in London , and it was a grey drizzly day everywhere. The class was a lot of fun. Stills form the afternoon are here
As the workshop was oversubscribed, I am running another on 24th July, details below:
This workshop is now FULLY BOOKED. See here for future workshops.
You will learn to make cameraless photographs “photograms” using this non-toxic process that originated in the 1800s. Each of the 5 (max) participants will need to purchase a specially prepared Cyanotype Kit via the link below so we are all using the same materials. The cost for the kit (and workshop) is a bargain at £29 inc p&p. The class runs for 2hrs, including a half-hour break so you can do some solid printing time and grab refreshments.
