Embark on a creative journey with our Cyanotype Imagery course, a photographic art form dating back to the 19th century, originally used for documenting botanical specimens. Join local artist Katie as she imparts her expertise in crafting stunning botanical blueprints on paper using this ancient technique. Be inspired by the groundbreaking work of 19th-century botanist Anna Atkins and weave your own artistic narrative through the lens of cyanotype magic. Unleash your creativity in this unique exploration of photographic history.
These art workshops are not just about teaching you an art technique. They are embedded with encouraging a deeper connection to self and community. They promote self-compassion through understanding how unique mark-making is. That simply being your authentic self, is the most healing intention you can set for yourself as a creative. These workshops are designed to ignite the creative spark within you for you to feel inspired, uplifted, connected and leave with ideas buzzing around for further creative endeavours!!!.
