Blue_Print for adults/children 13+ £5

Using the sun to expose prints. Kit will introduce you to printing cyanotypes in the sun using natural materials, without a camera. Don't worry it will still work if it's cloudy! It will just take a wee bit longer.

In this more advanced workshop, we will coat paper with uv light-sensitive chemicals and then use this prepared paper to print on.

Sunprints or Cyanotypes are an old photographic technique dating from 1842 that produces a prussian blue and white print and involves placing objects onto photo-sensitive paper, which will be provided.

We will use feathers, leaves and bits of fishing net and perhaps even seaweed to make our prints.

Laverack Cyanotypes at Taste Coffee Shop, St Andrews

  • Taste Coffee shop

I am exhibiting cyanotype prints all made from glass plates originally made by Professor Michael Laverack in the 1970s, when he worked in St Andrews University as a zoologist and marine biologist as well as a photographer (and screen printer).

The prints are all of tiny marine creatures and are for sale.

The exhibition is part of St Andrews Photography Festival which runs from 1st August-11th Sept 2016 in various venues around St Andrews. I'm very excited to be part of this festival and am running a cyanotype workshop for children in an ice fishing tent which I'm very much looking forward to!

Taste is the best coffee shop in St Andrews, in my opinion, so I'm chuffed to be showing my work there. It's open every day from 7am-10pm.

SKYWARD: A Study in Flight

  • Gateway Gallery

Skyward is now open! I have been working with a wonderful group of students who are on the Postgraduate Museum & Galleries Studies Course at St Andrews University. Together we are putting on this exhibition inspired by Prof James Bell Pettigrew (1832-1908), a medical doctor with a fascination of animal movement and particularly flight. He studied tirelessly and in 1873 he published Animal Locomotion; or Walking, Swimming and Flying. He also wrote Design in Nature in 1908. As part of the exhibition Henry Rae, a technician from the University made a wonderful zoetrope in which I have displayed some illustrations from Design in Nature of a pigeon in flight.

Prof Bell Pettigrew built a flying machine which was petrol powered and had flapping wings (an ornithopter) and at 70 years old flew down Abbey Walk in St Andrews for about 60 feet, before crash landing! He broke his hip.
