Bringing the Personal Touch to Cyanotype

Residents of Ashill loved artist Vicki Johnson's penultimate Cyanotype printing workshop yesterday, with many return visitors bringing their own photographs to incorporate into the artwork. 

Over the past few weeks villagers have been encouraged to share their own photos and memories of life in Ashill, as they have been sifting through images from the Village Archive.  Vicki was able to turn some of these photos into negatives which could then be incorporated to create personal prints that reflect individual experiences. Some shared pictures from village fetes gone by, others included themselves or their pets, including some real characters! 

With Vicki's final Cyanotype workshop on Wednesday 18th October, 11am - 4pm. all of the artworks created by residents will then be exhibited at the Community Centre on Saturday 21st October between 12 - 4pm.

Villagers are encouraged to come along and admire the creations, exploring Ashill past and present through this unique art form. All events are FREE to attend, so come along!
