Sarah runs workshops with small class sizes, she likes to give individual attention to beginners and experienced artists alike. The emphasis is always on fun, and having a communal interactive experience. Sarah has worked with children (2019 DRB check) as well as adults, from teens to the elderly.
In summertime Sarah is usually running outdoor workshops in the Cyanotype (sun printing) technique. This is an early photographic process of blue-printing that began in the 1800s with Anna Atkins making cameraless photographs of seaweed specimens. Sarah enjoys using this process with plants, to connect the participants with Nature. With lockdown, Sarah has taken these workshops online via Zoom, and sends outs kits of her pre-sensitised paper to participants, so that they can try out the technique from the safety of their own home or garden.
Sarah is interested in Physics, and explains the science behind Photography and Printing. She uses recycled packaging and materials in her art and workshops.
Past workshops have included: Painting to Music, Art and Local History, Photographing Portraits with Natural Light, Pop-up Portraits, Log-slice painting, Digital Photography, Halloween Drawing, Video, Photo Collage, Photo Walks (parks, Thames, graveyard, woodlands), Community Exhibitions, Mounting and Framing, Darkroom Training, Photograms.
