Come to a workshop on cyanotype printing at Gecko Studio Gallery with internationally recognised photo media artist Susan Purdy. Learn how Susan works with light sensitive blue print materials to create effective and simple imagery using plant material and other everyday objects to construct an image. The cyanotype is a process where art papers are coated with an emulsion to sensitise it to light and then an arrangement of elements is made on the surface before exposure to sunlight fixes the image permanently. Susan will teach workshop participants how to make their own striking images in a day, including both demonstrations and practical hands on experience. Participants can take along objects in their possession that might be used as silhouettes within images sized A5 and A4
