Create your own cyanotype print at home in the style of Anna Atkins, who is considered to be a pioneering female photographer.
Teach yourself how to make an embroidery hoop sun print, otherwise known as a cyanotype - this type of printing is unique in that it is a form of photography that does not require a camera or an expensive darkroom.
Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints.
The printing process is accessible, super easy and you will be able to create a stunning final work of art with its signature Prussian blue colour within minutes!
Your kit includes:
- Gloves, 1 set
- Bottle of ‘Part A’ Potassium Ferricyanide powder – 9g
- Bottle of ‘Part B’ Ferric Ammonium Citrate powder – 21.5g
- 1 Embroidery hoop 6" (15cm) with ribbon
- White linen & cotton fabric to fit hoop
- 'How to' Instructions
You will also have enough cyanotype left to make some paper prints.
Suitable for age 10+ with adult supervision.

For the avoidance of doubt, the cyanotype fabric print in the picture is not supplied and is for illustration purposes only.
