10:00am – 4:00pm 15th + 16th 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 plant and insects with her iconic, blue-tinted cyanotypes.
Our designs will develop from a collection of local plants and flowers and we will be experimenting with Atkins techniques on fabric. Students will learn a variety of embroidery stitches and a range of sculpting techniques to make bugs and animals that will embellish our customised tote bags and embroidery hoop artworks.
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 15th and Friday 16th of April.
