Event description

Description

Aim: To gain an understanding and practical experience of creating botanical prints using the wet cyanotype process.

Suitable for: No experience is required.

Method: The session will involve instruction and demonstrations with plenty of opportunity for hands-on practical experience to create two prints yourself.

Structure: The 'Introduction to Botanical Prints' workshop is a 3 hour session at my studio in Thornton-Cleveleys. We will be looking at the wet cyanotype process, the chemicals and materials, coating the paper and getting creative with items found in most kitchen cupboards. We'll also take a look at what other camera-less processes we could use such as regular cyanotype, van Dyke brown and lumen prints. With a maximum of only four attendees there's plenty of opportunity to create your own prints. Everyone attending will have access to a Facebook group for support and to ask questions.


Date: Thursday 13th June

Time: 5:30pm - 8:30pm
Location: Hardwick Studio, 1B Ingleway, Thornton-Cleveleys, FY5 2PQ

Tickets: Eventbrite

Price: £35

Requirements:

- A few old photo frames and bulldog clips
- Bring along some leaves and/or flowers.
- I'd recommend wearing old clothes or an apron, any splashes may stain.
- No experience required


CHEMICALS

- Potassium ferricyanide
- Ferric ammonium citrate

The chemicals are not poisonous but are considered to be an irritant so will require safe handling, avoid inhalation, skin or eye contact or ingestion. Even though the solutions we will be using are heavily diluted I would recommend wearing the gloves and safety goggles provided. Data sheets will be available.


I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you, Richard
