This is a great experience. Magda shared her knowledge of cyanotype and passion for photography and its history alongside helping me create beautiful prints. I will do this again and perhaps do it at home too.

We had a really enjoyable morning producing botanical cyanotype prints. Magda was a wonderful teacher who explained the chemicals, the process and history of the technique. She also showed us wonderful examples of her own work using other methods of photographic production.

The overall experience was amazing. I was seeking to find a creative outlet for my own mental health purposes and try something new - this was just the trick, the technique is simple (once you know how) and therefore i can continue to apply what I've learnt and use at home (details of process are also sent separately for future reference). Magda's knowledge surrounding the field of photography is incredible as she mentioned several techniques I'd never seen before. If you are looking for a creative outlet and enjoy photography / printing / textiles then this is a good choice of course at a reasonable value and I would highly recommend. With that, I would also consider some of Magda's other courses that I learnt of whilst on this experience.

I had an absolutely super time at this workshop! Magda was wonderful in providing fresh and dried supplies, generous with her explanations of different vintage photography techniques and even kindly provided tea! I left having had a super couple of hours and a group of cyanoprints I’m looking forward to putting up at home. Do this workshop - recommend it highly!
