  • 10th June 2018
    10:00 am - 1:00 pm

An introduction to one of the earliest photographic technique from the 1840s.  A cyanotype photogram is a camera-less process which produces rich blue prints by placing found objects such as leaves and flowers (or pieces of old machinery, knives and forks, whatever your creativity can conjure up) onto sensitised paper which we then expose to sunlight.  These one-off prints are then developed in running water.  You can expect to make and develop around four A4 sized prints during the workshop – ready to take home and frame, although they may be a little damp…

We will also have a look at the work of artists who continue to use this simple technique.

Workshops are planned to last around 2 1/2 – 3 hours with a maximum of 8 participants.

We will spend some time collecting suitable specimens from the grounds around the Boilerhouse Gallery – but can make other arrangements if mobility is an issue.  Please wear footwear suitable for fairly rough ground.  Workshop takes place outside so is weather dependent.

Suitable for ages of around 7 upwards, but children must be accompanied…

Address:
Sandyhill Workshops, Sandyhill Lane, Corfe Castle, BH20 5JF

Description:
Some workshops run from the Boilerhouse Gallery, part of the Sandy Hills Studios set up. Approaching Corfe from Wareham on A351, take the first left after the Studland turning, just before the road climbs to the village square.  Go under the railway bridge and turn immediately right along the track leading to the workshops and gallery – look out for the signs.   Coming from Swanage, the turning will be on your right at the bottom of the hill as you drop down from the village square.  We have limited parking at the gallery for customers.  On foot, the easiest access is over the footbridge at Corfe Castle station.
