Create your own cyanotype print in the style of Anna Atkins, who is considered to be a pioneering female photographer.

What happens in this class?

You will learn how to make a sun print, otherwise known as a cyanotype - this type of printing is unique in that it is a form of photography that does not require a camera or an expensive darkroom.

Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints.

The printing process is accessible, super easy and you will be able to create a stunning final work of art with its signature Prussian blue colour within minutes!

Things to remember

Emma will provide gloves and aprons but it's best not to wear your favourite clothes just in case you get chemicals on them.

You are welcome to bring your own materials (stencils, negatives, flowers etc) and play around with the prints. Emma will provide all other materials, including a…

I'd been looking for a Cyanotype workshop for a while and was really looking forward to my workshop with Emma. She was encouraging, professional, friendly but above all excellent in teaching the rudiments of cyanotype printing that left me after our session with what I had hoped for - an ambition to improve and take my interest to the next level and enjoy printing at home. So thank you very much Emma, best Julian.

I took this class with my mum. The tutor was very friendly, kind, helpful and hands-on, and we had a wonderful afternoon. We each made four prints, but the first was a tester. The three prints I have are absolutely lovely, and just what I wanted! We brought our own flowers and leaves, but she also provided lots of things to try, and she helped us make decisions about which items to use. I would have liked a bit more info about the history and use of cyanotype, and I also think the class should have been half an hour longer to give us a bit more time to make one or two more prints. Bear in mind that the prints are quite small - about A5, I think. I would recommend bringing a cardboard-backed envelope to carry them home.
