Learn how to make a sun print, otherwise known as a cyanotype - this type of printing is unique in that it is a form of photography that does not require a camera or an expensive darkroom. I will provide gloves and aprons but it's best not to wear your favourite clothes just in case you get chemicals on them. You are welcome to bring your own materials (stencils, negatives, flowers etc) and play around with the prints. I will provide all other materials, including a hair dryer..... all will be revealed! I do have a UV lamp if it happens to be an overcast day - let's face it, it's Britain! You will be making prints on @ 17.5cm x 24cm card. Please bring something with you to help you transport the prints back home in a flat position. The class duration is 1.5 hours. I will keep you topped up with tea or coffee (or Prosecco if a special occasion!)
I am a designer and a photographer. I grew up in Namibia and South Africa - my father always had a camera in his hand, either documenting our childhood or the amazing scenes of the African continent. My uncle was also an accomplished amateur photographer and traveller and I got into photography through him, my dad and through reading magazines like Drum, Life and National Geographic. After working as a lawyer in London, I was eventually made redundant in the recession of 2009 and it was a turning point in my life, reigniting my passion for photography. I am now a photographer & designer - went on to co-found the London Photo Festival, Mapp of London and photography now plays a pivotal role in my life. I can be flexible on location, dates, times and attendee numbers - please get in touch to discuss your bespoke requirements!
I can provide Prosecco if a special occasion!
The courses are run from my she-shed at the bottom of my garden! If the weather is good, we'll use the sun to make the prints otherwise I have a UV lamp to help us. I can also come to your work place if you are looking to run a team building event. Get in touch to discuss your bespoke requirements.
你需要提供一張與你身份證明文件上的相片相符之相片。 以便Airbnb確認是次體驗的參加者。 你只需進行此步驟一次。
I would advise that you do not wear your Sunday best although I will provide you with an apron!
You can book your course between 14h00-18h00 but the class lasts 1.5 hours (or longer if larger groups), let me know your preferred time and I will endeavour to provide it. Time slots before 14h00 or after 18h00 will be considered.
Learn to print without a darkroom!
