Studying historical textiles is the inspiration for this two-day class, in which we use Cyanotype and hand stitch to create textile art pieces. Day one involves an introduction to Cyanotype techniques and how to use this process to safely print from historic artefacts onto textiles. We will also explore toning Cyanotype to create sepia prints. On day two the focus in on studying historical textiles and translating observed marks into stitch to add to your prints. You will leave the class with a textile art piece well on the way and lots of ideas.
