Brief description of workshop:

In this workshop participants will create unique artistic images in response to the beautiful local surroundings of the Tilligerry Peninsula using a camera-less photography method called cyanotype.

This process produces cyan-blue prints using ultraviolet light from the sun. We will be exploring our immediate environment, foraging for plants, and found objects and using them as a source of design and printing subject matter to create our printed designs.

Morning session – we will make some dry and wet cyanotype prints on paper and cloth.

Afternoon session – we will make simple books using our cyanotype prints from the morning session. We will also look at ways to add colour, and stitch to our prints.

Requirements: Additional materials you might like to bring.

A hat and wear sunscreen. Bring an apron.

Notepad or sketchbook and pen.

A range of materials will be provided for you to choose from when making your cyanotype prints. You may like to bring along extra materials to try. Flowers and plant cuttings can produce beautiful silhouettes, ferns are excellent. Other ideas include buttons, feathers, lace, open weave fabrics… anything that will block out light and create patterns.

Scissors, ruler and lead pencil. Awl and bone fold.

Watercolour paint palette (Koh-I-Noor stackable disc palettes or similar), watercolour pencils, refillable water brush pen, or paintbrush and container for water.

A selection of embroidery thread in colours that you like, sewing needle, scissors and a small embroidery hoop (if you have one).


Kit: All materials supplied for printing. A range of art supplies for colouring prints to supplement those suggested on the requirement list.

Coffee and tea.

A Special note from Kelcie:

I have provided a requirements list for the workshop, but participants shouldn't need to make any special purchases. There will be items provided to share if they do not have them. Participants don't need to stress about getting any specialist equipment, they only need bring special items and tools if they already have them.

 The workshop is structured so that participants learn about the process, experiment and make a series of prints on paper and one on cloth. At the end of the workshop day, participants will use their prints to make a simple product, such as a book, card or stitched work. The workshop is designed so that participants have something to take away with them incorporating the printing process they have learned. Samples and possibilities are designed to suit a wide range of learners.
