Stapleford Granary

Course description

Saturday 14th September

09:30 - 17:00 | £110

Day Course

We will use the beautiful orchard surrounding the Studio at Stapleford Granary for some of our source materials, and spend the morning creating our cyanotypes, these will then be used as the covering materials for our afternoon of bookbinding.

Cyanotypes are produced from a camera-less photographic printing process developed in 1842 by Sir John Herschel, creating a recognizable blueprint. This is a wonderful opportunity to create a unique one-off personal design for your book which will then be hand bound.

All materials and equipment are provided and you will leave with the skills to reproduce the style of the book again at home.
