Cyanotype printing is an early form of photography, distinctive for its rich indigo colouring and the ethereal quality of the images. The prints are traditionally exposed using sunlight and were originally adopted by botanists to accurately capture the silhouette of the plants they studied.

During this fascinating day with Kim you will learn about the history and technical process of cyanotype and proceed to coat papers and/or material to create unique prints using found objects (from the garden, stencils or prepared negatives and watch as the sunlight (or special light bulb in the cyclists barn if it's cloudy) magically develops your works of art.
