Printing with Light: Botanical Workshop

image of a printed screen for a workshop event at Grasmere
Discover the printmaking technique of cyanotype, popular as an early method of making botanical studies, which uses sunlight to create ethereal images in shades of blue and white. You will learn about the process and how it can be applied to paper or fabrics, creating your own ‘photograms’ of plants and objects collected on a guided walk around the gardens and woodland surrounding Dove Cottage.
 
This workshop is led by local artist Kim Tillyer, who often uses cyanotype, as well as hand embroidery, in her own work. Lunch and light refreshments are included.
 
Cost: £60, pre-booking essential
