Looking to expand on the cyanotype skills that you learnt in our Beginners Cyanotype Workshop: Simply Blue? Join Lisa for this advanced class and let's get started!

We will start off with making a some regular cyanotype artworks which you will then tone. This means to change the colourway from the usual blue of cyanotype to shades of browns, greys, yellow and even purple tones. You will use a number of natural dyes which we will also discuss, explore and make up.

It's really exciting to watch the image disappear before your eyes then reappear in a totally different colourway. You will create four artworks during the course of this workshop to take home along with notes for future reference.

This class will expland your knowledge of the cyanotype process and introduce you to a huge range of potential colour variations.
