Cyanotype photography

Objects are placed directly onto the sensitised paper, then exposed to ultra violet light [the sun]. Exposures vary depending on the degree of transparency of the object.
Cyanotype, invented by Sir John Herschel in 1842, is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Each image is unique.

Julie Millowick’s interest in cyanotype was inspired by the beautiful work of pioneering photographer, Anna Atkins. Such are the archival properties of cyanotype, Anna’s work is still as rich and strong as when she created it over 100 years ago. Julie Millowick’s cyanotype work is utterly beautiful. It is a privilege for us to invite her here to share her incredible knowledge of this photographic process without a camera.

Viticultural Walking Tour of the Insectarium

We are introducing a guided walk around the insectariums with a leaflet to explain the design. Plant specimens are collected, dried and pressed as a part of the monitoring process of the insectarium.

These specimens will later be used in the cyanotype workshop presented by Julie Millowick. The walks will be conducted over four Fridays in September, November, December and January.

For bookings phone Mandy : 0411 253 506

You are invited to join the walks. Morning 10am - midday, two hours, slow pace. We also monitor birds and their nests so no dogs.

Numbers limited to 6 people. Bring sturdy walking boots and hats.
