Botanical Impressions with Cyanotype

This event has passed Get Tickets

Event description

Cyanotype imagery, developed in the 19th century as a way of documenting 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, an alternative photography technique, that uses objects from the natural world to create dreamy, surrealistic 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 will need to wear covered shoes, bring their own apron, and a selection of leaves, feathers, flowers, pressed flowers, fabric and other flat, textured items to utilise in their printmaking. All other materials and equipment will be provided.
