I’ll be leading 2 textile cyanotype courses at Print to the People printmaking studios in Norwich in spring/summer 2019. The first will be a one day introduction to the technique (full details), and the second will be a weekend of working with cyanotype and creating a one-of-a-kind Boro stitched apron (full details).
Introduction to Textile Cyanotype Printing – Saturday 18th May, 10:30am to 2:30pm
Join me at Print to the People printmaking studio in Norwich for a day of cyanotype printing onto textiles. Cyanotype is a heritage photographic technique from the 1800s. Using this simple technique, you’ll create your own eye-catching blue prints on fabric to take home. First used as a means to replicate architectural plans (known as ‘blueprints’), cyanotypes used in art have a dreamy and magical quality, and are a very addictive process! The session is suitable for all levels, including total beginners.
Tickets cost £57.50. To find out more or to book your place, visit the PTTP website.
Textile Cyanotype and Boro Stitched Apron (2 day course) – Saturday 3rd August & Sunday 4th August, 10:30am to 2:30pm
In this two day course, you’ll create a unique Boro stitched apron using cyanotype printed fabrics. Cyanotype is a heritage photographic technique from the 1800s. Using this simple technique, on day one, you’ll create your own eye-catching blue prints on fabric. On day two, you’ll work into your fabric swatches with Japanese inspired Boro stitching. Boro is a traditional upcycling technique to repair and rework textiles, often combined with Sashiko running stitch embroidery. The session is suitable for all levels, including total beginners, but basic hand-sewing skills would be helpful.
Tickets cost £112.50. To find out more or to book your place, visit the PTTP website.
