Sunday 20 June 2021 - 11.00 - 13.00


Lizzie's Studio at Farnham Pottery

Join Elizabeth Ransom for a fun and immersive camera-less photography workshop for adults and learn how to make beautiful Prussian blue prints using the cyanotype process.

Cyanotype is a historical photographic printing process invented in 1842 that produces a cyan-blue print. We will be using plants such as ferns, dried flowers, and leaves to create these striking camera-less photography prints.

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 coat your own paper Learn how to expose and wash your print using precoated paper Practice making your very own cyanotypes

​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.​

This workshop will take place inside Elizabeth’s artist studio located at Farnham Pottery. Directions and parking information will be emailed directly to participants before the workshop.
