Lizzie's studio at the Farnham Pottery

Join Elizabeth Ransom for a fun and interactive camera-less photography workshop for adults and learn how to make beautiful Anthotypes using beetroot juice and crushed flower petals.

Anthotypes are an eco-friendly alternative photographic process that uses the photosensitive properties of plants to create images. Anthotypes were discovered by Mary Somerville as part of her research into vegetable dyes. In this workshop we will be using beet root juice and crushed flower petals to create beautiful vibrant camera-less photographs.

In this workshop you will: Be introduced to a brief history of the process and how it is used today in contemporary art practice Learn how to create your own emulsion out of beet root juice and crushed flower petals Learn how to coat your own paper Practice making your very own anthotypes

​These workshops are perfect for all skill levels including complete beginners.

All materials are included, but please feel free to bring your own objects that you would like to make images with such as pressed flowers, lace, or other transparent objects.

​We will be adhering to social distancing rules advised by the government by limiting the number of students per class (maximum of 4), providing hand sanitizer and hand washing stations. We ask that you please wear a face mask when inside the studio.​
