PLEASE NOTE THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULL
In this two-part workshop, learn how to create your own striking cyanotype prints – a cameraless photography technique using special paper and UV light to create images more widely known as blueprints.
The workshop will be led by Ellen Price, a West Cumbrian photographer who uses different methods of cameraless photographs in her practice. To create images, Ellen frequently works with found and natural materials such as plants from her garden and other objects from the local landscape.
The online workshop will be live streamed from Florence Arts Centre in Egremont for you to follow along at home, and will use flora and fauna found in the surroundings of the stunning Florence mine site as inspiration.
The workshop is split into two parts, to allow everybody time to experiment with the technique outdoors and in different weather conditions before sharing the outcomes.
In the first workshop on 5th June, we will explore:
The history of Cyanotype, how to create and prep your paper with the chemical solutions and the process for creating prints using the sun.
Before the session, you will receive a free pack in the post with all the things you need to get started making your cameraless prints!
In the second workshop on 19th June we will meet up again to share the images we have created and discuss any questions that have arisen during the process.
