I had a great afternoon at Magda's studio in Soho. The studio is a small, lovely, quirky space filled with the camera's Magda uses to create her own beautiful work. She kicked off the course by explaining cyanotype printing and the process and materials (non toxic!) involved. She also explained some other types of printing and showed us various examples. After that, we spend the rest of the available time experimenting and creating 3 prints each that you get to take home. It was amazing to see how the prints turned out and really happy with the results. Can't wait to experiment at home!

A super-relaxed evening learning an interesting technique! Magda really knows her stuff and kept us entertained in between prints with fascinating historical bits of early photography processes. I absolutely love the prints I came away with and have a hundred ideas for more that I’m keen to try! Would happily recommend this workshop for a creative night out.

Magda was very informative and gentle and the class rocks. I loved it and cannot wait to attend another one of her classes. I was super proud of the piece I have created.

Magda is super knowledgable about the cyanotype process and lets you be hands on with creating your own from the beginning. She was also kind enough to talk to me about other styles of photography that she also does, so all in all it was a great history lesson!

This was a really inspiring class. The cyanoprint technique is very accessible but we also learned about other historical methods, such as Daguerreotypes. Magda is very friendly and enthusiastic as well as knowledgeable and her work is just amazing. I don't live in London but I really hope to be able to do another workshop with her. My interest in photography has been rekindled!The venue is quirky and worth a visit in itself. It's nothing modern or glamorous, being a dark basement that seems very appropriate for a photography developing class. There's an interesting little bookshop above, as well as a tiny theatre. I now feel 100% confident to carry out my own cyanotype printing this summer!
