Using natural materials you have foraged from the garden, you’ll create your own Prussian Blue cyanotype print to take home. This relaxed yet productive workshop is for anyone with a curious interest in this magical artistic medium.
Cyanotype, also known as ‘blue print’ or ‘sun print’, was invented by Sir John Herschel in 1841 and was initially used to reproduce technical drawings. This simple process can be used in endlessly creative ways to make gorgeous, unique prints inspired by Trebah in spring.
How do you make a cyanotype print?
A solution is prepared and painted onto paper. When exposed to the sun or UV light, it reacts and transforms into a spectacular Prussian Blue colour. Items placed on the paper during the exposure block the sunlight creating shapes and patterns.
