Cyanotypes on Fabric Wednesday 7 August

with Laura Cranstoun

  • 50 British pounds
  • Treetops, Newbury

Service Description

We enjoyed a really fun cyanotype class last year, working on watercolour paper. This year we are going to work with fabric and enjoy making some lovely patterns on pieces of fabric and by the end print our creation onto a Tote Bag, using this process of chemicals and light. It's the precursor to modern photography, discovered in 1842! Come and learn about the cyanotype /sun printing process from the 1840s, using treated fabrics, cyanotype paint and UV light, create your very own botanical images to take home. We will be laying leaves, flowers, feathers, grasses found in the garden and woodland at Treetops onto the fabric and exposing it to sunlight to capture their images permanently and to make a beautiful blue print onto a tote bag for you to take home. (If you have any pressed flowers or foliage at home you are very welcome to bring them to use in this workshop). The class runs from 9:30am - 12:30pm, and includes time for tea and cake whilst the fabric does it 'magic', you will make both a tote bag and some fabric sample pieces. Cost to include everything on the day is £50pp. In the Afternoon we will be running a Machine Stitching Textile Workshop from 2pm - 5pm, you can choose to join us for the whole day, and join BOTH CLASSES with a LUNCH INCLUDED, but you will need to email me to book the WHOLE DAY offering, and not do it through the website booking system. emily@treetops-newbury.co.uk
