Description

In this hands on workshop you will create your own cyanotype prints on fabric and paper using the traditional chemical solutions, contact printing and stencilling techniques.

The Cyanotype process, discovered in the 1940's, was one of the earlier types of photography used and creates a Prussian Blue print on paper or fabric. The process involves creating your design, stencil or negative, coating paper with the photosensitive chemical solutions in a dark room, then exposing the paper with the stencil under UV light. It is more widely recognised now for its use to create "blueprints" for architectural or technical drawings from a positive.

You will get to understand basic photography techniques such as positives and negatives in film, the chemical process, how to sensitise your fabric and paper, as well as hands on learning about exposing and toning your prints. There will also be a demonstration on how to create multiple shades and depths in the same print.

ABOUT BE KIND TEXTILES

Roz is a Melbourne based textile designer and maker that explores the importance of the connection people have with textiles and the appreciation for the hand crafted.

After Graduating RMIT Dip. Textile Design and Development where she focused her study on sustainable materials and intricate mindful designs, she stepped away from the outward pressure put on her to create wasteful products using materials and supply chains with questionable ethics.

She now prefers a slower more thoughtful design process. Roz teaches textile based workshops around Melbourne and Regional Victoria, hosted by a variety of organisations and venues, combining her love and knowledge of textiles with the therapeutic act of hand-making.

Her label Be Kind Textiles is about what she loves doing most, creating thoughtful quality products, while using sustainable methods, ethically sourcing materials and being kind to the earth.
