Cyanotype (14th August)

The Old Courthouse Thirsk
Wednesday 14th August

(£35 + £10 materials)

Make beautiful blue prints of plants, drawings or stencils using the sun’s UV rays - nature’s original camera!

In this workshop you will learn how to make indigo coloured prints of plants, drawings, or paper stencils by exposing pre-coated fabrics or paper using UV rays from the sun. Artist Angela Hall will give advice on the design and format of your piece, as well as how you can use it in future projects.

Angela Hall recently exhibited her prints and ceramics as part of North Yorkshire Open Studios. She has taught a multitude of workshops over the years, both as founder and director of Rural Arts, and as a freelance artist. Angela draws inspiration from her surroundings, using imagery from the woods and heathland where she lives.

Workshops at Rural Arts give you the opportunity to learn or develop an artistic skill in a relaxed, creative environment and are all suitable for beginners. Our tutors are friendly, passionate and have lots of experience and knowledge to share with you. We want your day with us to be relaxed, offering you a bit of escapism and the chance to get to know like-minded people (plus there’s the bonus of getting to take something you have lovingly made home with you!).

Get to know others in the group whilst enjoying a drink in The Courthouse Café before heading through to the workshop to start getting creative! The Café will be open throughout the day for you to get drinks and delicious lunches and cakes. Visit The Courthouse Café page to view our menu.

Please bring an apron.
