I am an experienced teacher with over ten years of teaching experience, having completed my PGCE in 2007 and then teaching art, design and media in mainstream education before becoming a head of department. I now work as a freelance teacher and artist.

I currently deliver workshops that will introduce you to a technique so that when you leave you are confident to carry on using it when you get home. I also run drop-in taster workshops at festivals and markets that allow you to have a go at something.

If you are interested in me running a workshop at your event or venue please get in touch through the contact page. I can tailor workshops to meet the needs of your venue/the participants and am more than happy to discuss this with you.

Cyanotype workshops

The cyanotype is a 19th century photographic process which uses chemicals that produce beautiful blue prints when exposed to sunlight. It was originally championed by Victorian botanist Anna Atkins to document plant specimens. During this two hour workshop you will be introduced to this wonderful technique and learn how to make your own prints using leaves and flowers. 

After an introduction to the process and its history you will be shown how to coat your own paper with cyanotype chemicals. Whilst this is drying you will have an opportunity to make some test prints before using the paper which you have hand coated to create a range of images using sunlight to expose your images and then water to develop them. At the end of the two hour session you will leave with a range of prints. You’ll also receive a handout recapping the process and detailing a list of suppliers and online resources. This workshop is only suitable for adults due to chemicals being used.

All materials and equipment including aprons and gloves will be provided. Leaves and flowers will also be provided but you are free to bring your own items to create your image with.
