Join artist and experienced tutor Jill Welham on this day and a half course and learn all about cyanotype, aslo known as sun printing. You'll take home your own tote bag.
The course will teach you:
- how to create traditional cyanotypes on both paper and fabric
- a brief history of the process
- mixing the required chemicals
- applying the chemicals
- creating the finished design on a canvas tote bag
On day one you will learn the basic process of cyanotype and create traditional blue and white photograms on paper using leaves, flowers, feathers and lace. In the afternoon you will have chance to make some wet cyanotypes on paper. You will then prepare some fabric samples and a tote bag with chemicals which will be left to dry overnight.
On the second day you will create cyanotypes on the fabric samples and a finished design on your tote bag. You will have the opportunity to make your own paper stencils to use for your tote bag design as well as using plant materials
This course is suitable for complete beginners and those with a basic knowledge of the process.
Jill has been making cyanotypes for over ten years and in 2019 was the overall winner of the International Garden Photographer of the year with one of her wet cyanotype photograms.
