This morning workshop aims to give you a brief insight into the history of the Cyanotype, a Victorian reproduction technique developed in the 1840s.

Gaining inspiration from the garden and hedgerows around the farm, you will use seasonal flora to produce an original prints to take home. 

All materials for producing a print will be provided on the day or foraged from our edible garden. If you have some flowers or leaves from your own garden or other interesting shaped items that you would like to work with, do bring them along. 

At the end of the session you'll take home your three or four small A6 prints and one larger A4 size print. They'll look great on the wall at home!

 

Cyanotype print making needs plenty of sunlight so this course only takes place in the summer.
