Cyanotype Workshop at Rydal Mount, 21 May 2022

On 21 May 2022 I am running a cyanotype printing workshop at Rydal Mount, the lovely former home of Romantic poet William Wordsworth, where he lived from 1813 until his death in 1850. This is an opportunity to learn how to produce prints using a technique dating back to 1842, but with a modern twist. We’ll make light sensitive paper and then spend some time photographing in the gardens before producing negatives that can be used for printing. Bring a phone or a camera to take the photographs. If you are using your phone, please download the free Snapseed photo editing app before the workshop. Everyone will go away with at least one print, and negative.

More information and a link for booking is at the Rydal Mount website.

  1. Chris– would love to join you in Wordsworth’s home, but will not arrive in UK in time– visiting Kew and Sevenoaks from 2nd to 8th June. Lodging above the pub near Sevenoaks. Tough life for a Seattle ale-head. Regards.


  2. Good of you to recommend a stout Chris… I forget how nourishing they are.
    Here in Seattle, it’s IPA city. Difficult to find a red ale. I have a fond memory of an ESB in a London pub, oh, back in 1981 or ’82. Fuller’s maybe?
