Cyanotype imagery, developed in the 19th century to document botanical specimens, is one of the oldest forms of photography. In this one-day workshop, Northern Rivers visual artist Katie Alleva will lead participants step by step through the fascinating technique of wet cyanotype printing, using objects from the natural world to create dreamy, beautiful images. The class will be inspired by the pioneering work of 19th-century botanist Anna Atkins, and participants will end the day with a series of cyanotype impressions on high-quality paper to take home.
Participants are to bring their own small selection of fresh foraged flowers, leaves, feathers, and/or pressed flowers to utilise in their cyanotype prints. All other materials and equipment will be provided.
Katie's studio is in Mullumbimby. She will have an outdoor set-up fro the morning, so please bring a hat, suncream, apron and covered shoes. A fridge is available if you need to store BYO food and/or drinks.

"I have learned to embrace the transformative power of visual arts practice. My art workshops are not just about teaching you an art technique. They are embedded with encouraging a deeper connection to self and community. They promote self-compassion through understanding how unique mark-making is. That simply being your authentic self, is the most healing intention you can set for yourself as a creative. My workshops are designed to ignite the creative spark within you. My goal is for you to feel inspired, uplifted, and connected and leave with ideas buzzing around for further creative endeavours!!!"
