Join Made in Bow artist Felicity Hammond in a two hour session and experience for yourself the places and processes which inspired her work!
Felicity has a background in producing large- scale digital prints which have been manually collaged, layering moments of time into one believable image. For the Made in Bow exhibition, Felicity chose to work in cyanotypes as a response to her research into the architectural plans of the original Bow Porcelain factory, and the colour palette of wares produced. Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that gives a cyan-blue print, and is used in engineering to produce blue- prints.
This workshop will begin at 3pm with an informal introduction to the Made in Bow exhibition. Felicity will talk through her research and work she created inspired by her interest in the physical site and history of the Bow Porcelain factory.
The second part of the session will take place outdoors. After the introduction, Felicity will lead you to the site of the original Bow Porcelain factory and along the way explain the photographic techniques she uses as part of her image- making process.
You will have the opportunity to create your own cyanotypes! Felicity will first explain how to create prints using objects or images, exposing them using sunlight onto specially prepared paper. You can spend about half an hour making your own 'blue- print' with cyanotype paper provided.
Felicity will lead you back to The Nunnery where you will have enough time to develop the paper, reveal and discuss the results.
