This process was also used to make the winning entry to the BBC garden photographer of the year
1-cyanotype

British photographer Jill Welham has been announced as the overall winner of this year's International Garden Photographer of the Year Competition.

The North Yorkshire photographer beat 19,000 entrants from more than 50 countries to scoop the top prize of £7,500 with her photogram print entitled Fireworks, below. The image shows Allium flower heads from her garden.

Welham used a photogram printing process called wet cyanotype, where ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide are mixed to create a photosensitive solution which is then painted on to watercolour paper and left to dry.

The Alliums are placed between photosensitive paper and a plate of glass, and then exposed to light. When developed, the silhouettes from the flowers create an image on the paper in shades of green and blue.

Sarah Hopkins |  Screenprinting with paper stencils

May 26/27.

Those of you who are familiar with her work will know that she has her own unique approach to designing for print, capitalising on cut and torn paper stencils to build up the design through coloured layers. No coating of screens, no exposures – just cutting and a lot of thought!

This is a very open, non technical approach enabling great flexibility as you go through the design process.

Nawr Yr Arwr \ Now The Hero

I first encountered Frank Brangwyn’s Empire Panels at a very young age during school speech days and I have been influenced by his monumental design, his drawing skills and exuberant colours ever since. This two day course will draw inspiration from the flora, fauna and people in these panels, working with a three-colour monotype technique, pioneered by Impressionists Degas and Monet, and given a contemporary spin by American printmaker Vinita Voogd. You will have two unique pieces, one full-colour and one “ghost”, using the highest quality inks and papers, reflecting the richness and diversity of these magnificent murals

Rose Davies has already made brief film of the commissioned work she has done for Nawr Yr Arwr / Now The Hero. This can be seen on her website
