About this event **SOLD OUT **
This is a full day workshop introducing you to the cyanotype process and provides an opportunity to experiment with printing onto fabric and paper. It is suitable for textile designers, painters, photographers and anyone else who might be interested in this fascinating, versatile process. Beginners are welcome, but you will also benefit if you are looking for a refresher in this fascinating process.
Although the emphasis for the day is on fabric, you will, once you have coated some fabric with cyanotype chemicals, make prints on paper too. This will be a day of experimentation: once you have learnt the basics of mixing chemicals and coating things with them, you will be able to work at your own pace. There will be examples and books for ideas. The number of prints you will make will depend in part on the strength of the sun!
No experience is necessary. All materials will be provided, but you might want to bring bits of fabric (natural only and washed), and/or some items to make prints with. e.g. plants, feathers, lace or other items that can be squashed under glass. An apron is recommended, to avoid blue stains from the chemicals. You will be working outdoors for some of the time.
