An Introduction to Making Cyanotype Botanical Prints

An Introduction to Making Cyanotype Botanical Prints

Nettlewood Flowers is working with Artist Melanie Miller to host a workshop. 

Using beautiful flowers from the cutting garden at Nettlewood Flowers, you will learn how to make prints using Cyanotype, a basic photographic process which is sometimes called sun photography. Cyanotypes were invented in 1843 by John Herschel and used to great effect by his fried Anna Atkins in her famous photogram images of algae. Anna went on to be the first woman to publish a photographic book with her collections.

At the workshop we will show you how to prepare the paper and help you compose and expose the paper to create the iconic blueprint images. 

The price for the workshop is £85.  All materials, instruction and refreshments are provided and you will take home the images you have created.

Book early to secure your place as we are limited to 6 people.  If you are unable to make this date but would like to attend a future workshop please let us know as we will be running more dates.
