A free, open-air workshop where participants will create a collaborative cyanotype and use a mix of alternative photography techniques with artist, Cath Stanley.
We are thrilled to welcome you along to our first in-person workshop of the year! Led by photographic artist Cath Stanley, you will create a long collaborative cyanotype piece and a series of smaller ones. A selection of mixed papers and cards will be provided which will allow you to make a variety of cyanotypes. You will also make some some small chemigrams and if we get a bit of sun or good light maybe try some lumen prints at the start of the workshop. This will be a morning of alternative photography techniques, to inspire and refresh you.
This 2 hour workshop will be fun and a great chance to mingle with other photographers. It will take place at MUD (Manchester Urban Diggers) in Platt Fields Market Garden, Manchester. Social distancing will be in place and you may be asked to wear a mask.
Cath Stanley is a photographer and educator based in Manchester, with a keen focus on environment and conservation. She is the founder of Landform a social media platform to support and promote the work of female landscape photographers.
Within her own creative practice, she enjoys experimenting with photographic images, intrigued by the mystery of landscape, its personal significance and the stories her surroundings hold. Led by curiosity, her images explore a holistically creative approach, often supported by narrative.
