Event Type

An opportunity to learn the historic photographic technique of cyanotype using a range of botanical
specimens, feathers and lace. Create beautiful blue and white photograms from nature. Cyanotype
(or sun printing) is an historic photographic process first invented in 1842. In this three hour taster
session you will learn about the traditional process and make your own beautiful images to take

Cyanotype creates a white silhouette on a Prussian blue background. Using the sun to create your
images, it’s a wonderful way to engage with nature and capture the tiniest details of a leaf, petal or
fern frond.

We’ll be using cyanotype chemicals painted onto watercolour paper and a selection of leaves,
flowers, feathers and lace to create our images. All materials will be provided but if you have a
favourite plant, flower or small piece of lace fabric bring it along and make your own truly unique
photograms to frame and treasure.

If you love blue and white prints, this session is definitely for you!

All materials and refreshments are provided


About Jill:

Jill Welham is a printmaker and self-taught cyanotype artist, in 2019 she was the overall winner of the International Garden Photographer of the Year with one of her wet cyanotype prints. Jill works primarily creating both traditional and wet cyanotype photograms using botanical specimens that she collects from her garden and surrounding countryside. Her images have been exhibited internationally and many of her original cyanotype prints are in private collections around the world.

Jill completed a yearlong project to create a body of work using plants and flowers collected from the walled garden of Burton Agnes Hall, a historic country house in East Yorkshire, UK. The completed work was exhibited in the Garden Gallery at the Hall in 2021.

She now lives and works in Nairn, in the Scottish Highlands and makes her work outside in her garden, using only the sun to expose the images.
