Here is a unique chance to learn the ancient art of Cyanotype printing.

Using the UV light of our beautiful sun and a few carefully mixed chemicals, a couple of hours is all you need to walk away with your very own eco printed cloth!

Hella fun and mother earth friendly!

 

Whats the plan stan?

Hold onto your knickers its gonna be a ride!

  • We will start with an intro to the cyanotype process and its history, showing historical examples
  • Demonstration and hands on experience of mixing chemicals and coating the fabric
  • Demo of how to create cyanotype prints and have a go on some pre-coated fabric.
  • Once your own fabric is dry, you will spend the rest of the workshop creating prints!
  • Clever handout with step by step instructions and suppliers list for trying this again and again!

 

What shall I bring?

Nothing! Well I guess you could bring some foliage and garden fun stuff, but we got ya covered.

Sally will provide

  • fabric for experimenting the cyanotype process
  • plant specimens, a range of leaves, flowers and other objects
  • cyanotype chemicals, brushes, aprons, gloves, boards, perspex, bulldog clips & lightproof bags for drying prints in

We need the prints to be exposed to sunlight, so you will need to stand outside and catch some rays!

Shop FAQs

I am running late?

Damn it! We start our classes bang on time – It’s just how we roll. If you are late – you may be turned away and will need to re-book for another time.

Kinda like rocking up to the theatre late and the show has started so you have to wait outside until half time, except there is no half time and we can’t catch you up, and you will just disrupt the whole session. Think about your fellow class mates x

Can I reschedule my booking?

Yes! Please email anouska@make.town to request a new date that works with our current calendar. This must be no later than 72 hours (3 days) before your class takes place. If you miss this window, tough titties.

Rescheduling is fine, we are fully capable, but it does suck lots of time, so please be clear and quick. Much appreciated.

I can't come and I only found out today!

Yeah sorry! We have already prepped and planned for your class by now, so you can send a mate in your place instead.

Sometimes we have a waiting list and are happy to offer your place. But no guarantees as this is not always the case.

I only used 1/2 of my booking can i use the rest later?

Not this time! We don’t refund or rebook any unused time.

Think about it like missing the opening act of a gig, you don’t get half ya ticket price refunded at the box office back cause you were late, or walked out half way through. You just gotta suck this one up.

Sign up to receive good news, sweet deals, and 7000 years of good luck for you and your loved ones.
