About this Event

A botanical themed cyanotype workshop that focuses on wellbeing and therapeutic art. The environment will be supportive, fun and exciting!

Cyanotype, also known as sun printing, is a 180-year-old photographic printing process. It is a unique and easy process which produces printed patterns and silhouettes onto light sensitive paper. It’s fun, easy and great for experimentation. This workshop is ideal for beginners, no experience necessary. All materials are included and results in one A4 print and three A6 greetings cards.

During the workshop we will introduce you to the basics of the cyanotype printmaking process, see all the necessary tools needed and learn about using natural light or U.V light to achieve different results. On the day we will be using U.V light to contact print with objects to allow you to create your own cyanotype images. All with be done in a gentle and supportive manner.

  • 1 1/2 Hour Cyanotype workshop at Make. North Docks, Liverpool
  • Two experienced tutors on hand
  • Introduction to Cyanotype and this historical process
