The wonderful Kim Tillyer is running a workshop on Cyanotype at Linden Print Studio on Thursday 24 May.
Cyanotype was invented in 1824 by Sir John Herschel. This is the man, photographed by Julia Margaret Cameron:
Very quickly, botanist Anna Atkins started using the technique to record plants. She is often considered the first woman photographer.
Here's one of her images:

So, cyanotype has a beautiful and long history, connecting art and architecture, science and design. Come and find out more about the process for yourself by booking a space on the course...Kim knows a lot more than me!
