Make magical contact prints using the sun with Emma Stibbon. Cyanotype is a historic photographic process that involves an iron based coated paper that is sensitive to UV light, resulting in a deep prussian blue image.Following Ruskin’s scrutiny of the natural world we will explore the cyanotype process, capturing the silhouette and details of nature on light sensitive paper.

Emma Stibbon is an award-winning artist with an international reputation.Drawing is at the heart of Stibbon’s practice, and her work records the effects of human intervention and natural phenomena on monumental structures and explore the fragility of existence. ChimborazoI and Chimborazo II, created following fieldwork in Ecuador at the invitation of Project Pressure, feature in ‘Ruskin: Museum of the Near Future’.

She is currently Senior Lecturer in Fine Art Printmaking at the University of Brighton, and elected Royal Academician in 2013.
