This live online craft class introduces you to historical printmaking processes and you'll be taught to use plants to produce interesting botanical images. Guided by your expert teacher, you'll create light-sensitive botanical paint from plant juices obtained from plants such as leftover spinach, beetroot or turmeric.

You'll also learn how to make an anthotype print using a digital photo from your phone or camera - get ready to have your knowledge of photography and printmaking stretched to new heights!

If you're looking for fun things to do at home, either by yourself for some creative downtime, or with your partner, friends or kids, this live online class in printmaking is an interesting and creative choice.

I'm Magda, a Polish artist and photographer working from my London studio. With a great passion for historical photographic and printmaking techniques, I produce my own work and teach fun and creative methods of printmaking to fellow artists, beginners or those who simply wish to spend some time getting creative!

My journey with historical processes began in 2013 and since then I've worked with a range of photographic techniques: more experimental and complex such as wet plate collodion photographic glass plate process invented in 1856, gum bichromate, salt print, as well as those basic and simple to use like cyanotype, anthotype or pinhole photography. For the last few years, I have taken part in several festivals, larger community projects and private events internationally, providing participants with a great deal of knowledge, experience and entertainment.

In the past I have collaborated with various art institutions and galleries across London, including University of Arts London, British Museum, CitizenM, WeTransfer providing all sorts of unique experiences for local communities and participants of all levels of experience: adults, seniors, children and adults with learning disabilities.

I look forward to sharing my passion for historical photographic printmaking techniques with you!
