Anthotype Workshop

Your expert tutor will guide you through the process of extracting a coloured emulsion from plants using apothecary techniques, all the way to creating a finished image.  You will produce gorgeous floral prints from collected specimens which can be displayed in your home, used in card making or given as a special gift.  Anthotyping is an intriguing process, full of surprises as the fascinating results are created by natural elements.  Many plants are as yet unexplored so you may just make a brand new discovery on the workshop!  Depending on the plants chosen the anthotype printing process can be as fast as 2 hours or as long as 3 weeks, so you will be able to take your resources home with you to continue after the workshop and perhaps make some more prints from your own garden.
