Photopoetics – Cyanotypes, Tea toning and Poetry

15 - 18 August 2019

Free workshops for people in Harrow on low income, unemployed or in receipt of benefits. We will explore and create individual and collective photo poems using the cyanotype and tea-toning processes, and surrealist word games. The Cyanotype process is a photographic printing process that utilizes UV light to create an image that is cyan/blue in color. The process was invented by Sir John Hershel in 1842 and is made up of ammonium ferric citrate and potassium ferricyanide and is nontoxic. There will also be an introduction to opportunities and advice on employment in the arts and culture sectors.

No previous experience in art making is needed and a experienced artist tutor will lead you though the techniques and processes. All materials and refreshments are provided. A £10 refundable deposit will be required to secure your place – email us to book.
