Let the child in you get naughty with art materials and doll parts whilst socialising with other regressing adults. More “Sip and make a mess” than “sip and paint”, we promise to not teach you anything. Instead, we’ll invoke the Jackson Pollock in you to come out and play. Confused? So are we, by modern life! So join us for an evening of weird and wonderful art experiments that will leave you strangely satisfied.

In this second part to our cyanotypes workshop, you will build on your knowledge of sunprints and have fun changing the classic blue tones to new shades using common products. We’ll raid the mini bar and cupboard under the sink to explore the spectacular form of art that is sunprint toning. You will discover the power of tannins contained in a range of different products such as: tea, wine, coffee, wood extract and fruit juices. Expect the unexpected as you witness colour tones changing from blue to a variety of new shades depending on the solution used.
We will be using previously produced prints for demonstration and you can bring your own cyanotype prints too!
All materials will be included, including tea, coffee, and wine (please consume responsibly and leave some of it for toning).
Create blue tone photographic prints using only the sun, water and whatever found objects or negatives available to you. Learn to harness the power of UV light to create unique images that you will want to show off with pride. This ancestral process produces an image onto paper in wonderful shades of blue. You will have the option to use objects to create silhouette images (photograms), or photographic images on acetate sheets (contact positive ). You can bring your own objects (leaves, flowers, glass, shells, etc) or send us photographs we can turn to negative transparencies for you to use on the day. All other materials will be provided, along with tea and coffee.
