“Just a big THANK YOU for the workshop yesterday. We had a super time, were well informed and produced much more than expected.” Vickie W.

“Thank you so much for a lovely day and for your help and encouragement in such a beautiful studio setting.   My book has held together and has pride of place … might even make a ‘blue’ room…” Jacky R.
“Great cyanotype workshop lead by Angela, someone with lots enthusiasm for her art and process. Learned a lot, made some new friends and was very well looked after in the Joe Cornish gallery with food and coffee. Would recommend the experience to anyone that wanted to try their hand in a magical printing method. Then got to see, and buy, some of Angela’s work for real in the gallery.
Thanks Angela.” Steve N.

“I recently attended Angela Chalmers’ Cyanotype Workshop at The Joe Cornish Gallery, Northallerton.
Angela introduced the cyanotype technique with a short talk on its history, a demonstration of how to mix the solution, choose and coat paper, and produce a cyanotype image. We were soon coating paper and while it was drying were provided with a lovely lunch. The afternoon raced by as we made our own images which we, amazingly, turned into little concertina books to take home – a lovely memento. I thought Angela ran the workshop really well and was very generous with her knowledge and help, everything needed was provided and I came away with the confidence to experiment further at home. Thank you, Angela. I’m not a photographer but I enjoyed learning how to make images using sunlight – something magical about it! I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would recommend this course not just to photographers but to anyone who like craft work.’ Janice N.

“Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the cyanotype workshop. I love to see the results of experimentation by others. When the chemicals are washed off the paper what is revealed appears as if by magic – a wonderful experience every time! I’m going to order my chemicals today and one or two of those lovely Japanese brushes – they are such beautiful things in their own right I must have some! The Joe Cornish Gallery is a delight…many thanks for an interesting, informative and inspiring day.” Jane P.
