Try out one of the earliest photography processes, using the sun to create unique blue and white prints.
In this workshop we will explore the cyanotype process, using natural chemicals that react with the suns rays to create unique blue and white prints. You will learn about some of the fundamentals and history of photography and a bit of the science behind how it all works! Combining the use of found objects and drawing you will have the opportunity the create your own print on fabric. It’s a simple and fascinating process, suitable for all ages.
Lucy Marriott is a Sheffield based visual artist and educator working primarily with analogue photography processes. After graduating from a Fashion Communication course at Middlesex University she went on to complete an artist residency in Japan, exploring more experimental processes such as pinhole cameras and cyanotype printing. She has since worked as a freelance artist educator using art as a tool to engage communities.
