What will we cover?

Cyan prints are created using the sun (or UV torches). After selecting your leaves, flowers, grasses, objects, the sun will do its job and you will then wash the fabric off in water. You will be able to experiment on scraps of fabric and then compose a design for your fabric tote bag.

See what you can create!

How will I be taught?

You’ll be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as you work.

 

You’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that you’re getting the best results you can.

Do I need any previous experience or skills?

No experience necessary.

Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?

Please bring an apron to protect your clothes. You will need to bring objects or plants to make the prints, perhaps a favourite plant or flower? Seed heads, feathers or lace all work well too.

What will I take home with me?

Your own cyanotype creations.

Refreshments

Drinks and biscuits will be available.

Photography

During all of our workshops photographs are taken for promotional purposes only. Please make us aware at the time of booking if you would prefer not to be included.
