Learn a unique plant-based photography technique in this anthotype workshop.

Using photosensitive material derived from plants, this method is one of the most natural and sustainable photography printing processes.

Artist Melanie King introduces a brief history of the process before inviting participants to select a plant to practise the technique with.

Along with a set of handmade prints, participants leave with the skills to make more at home.


All materials are provided. This workshop is suitable for beginners.
