Learn how to make a stunning cyanotype embroidery hoop with designer and photographer Emma Mapp.

Cyanotypes, also known as sun prints, are a unique type of analogue printmaking and photography that does not require a camera or an expensive darkroom. 

In this course and kit, you'll learn how to create your own cyanotype print at home in the style of Anna Atkins, a pioneering woman photographer.

Using easy-to-master techniques, you'll follow a printing process that is accessible, super easy and fun. You will be able to create a stunning final work of art with its signature Prussian blue colour within minutes!
