10:00am – 4:00pm 8th + 9th of April
Join us for this two-day masterclass with award-winning artist Elizabeth Marruffo as we explore the incredible life and times of English botanist Anna Atkins, who was one of the first women to take photographs. Atkins was fearlessly curious and documented many plants and insects with her iconic, blue-tinted cyanotypes.
During this two-day masterclass we will be experimenting with the same photographic exposures and contemporary illustration techniques to create our artworks based on local flowers and plants. Working with transparencies, paint pans and acrylics on paper and canvas the hard part will be deciding which of your beautiful works to display!
Our small class size of only 11, means that each student will get the feedback and attention they need in order to achieve their best outcome.
All materials and an afternoon tea fruit platter will be provided for each day. Please bring a nut free snack and lunch as well as a water bottle.
Suitable for ages 7 and above
10.00am – 4.00pm on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th of April.
