What you'll do

Come join me at my artist’s studio in an undiscovered, fascinating and atmospheric part of Berlin. Over coffee, I’ll tell you all about the lost art of cyanotypes, filling you in on the background to this beautiful and historic photographic technique. Working with non-toxic chemicals, I’ll guide you through a workshop that will result in striking cyan blue prints. We’ll experiment with objects to create abstract compositions, work with images of Berlin’s most famous sights - you can even make cyanotypes from your own photographs. The moment the blue images appear on paper is truly magical. At the end of the workshop, you’ll have tried your hand at this fascinating artform, and have five of your own cyanotype prints to take away.

I give cyanotype workshops and courses in schools and art schools - and I look forward to sharing this wonderful technique with you.

Where you'll be

We’ll meet in my big, bright studio with a beautiful view of the River Spree. Located in Schöneweide, it’s part of a heritage-protected industrial complex. These days, while the imposing late nineteenth century architecture remains the same, the area is home to many artists and cultural projects.
