Discover the magical art of Cyanotypes with local maker Bloemen & Blue. Invented in 1842 by Sir John Herschel as a way to copy his mathematical equations this ‘Blue Print’ Photography Process uses the alchemy of Iron solutions and sunlight to produce prints in a palette of blues from its hints to its depths.

Experiment with different papers, subject matter and exposures to create a number of prints to take home with you. With Cyanotype’s many variables there is an unpredictability to the results, and some of the best prints appear as ‘happy accidents’ making them all absolutely totally original and each one unique to you.

No experience is necessary, simply a curiosity to experiment!

A number of Bloemen & Blue pieces are available in the museum shop, including prints and DIY Cyanotype kits.

Please note: this workshop is suitable for ages 18+ as part of Chippenham Museum’s Creative Workshops for Adults series.
