While picking some dried grass heads this morning I noticed that one of them has flowered for the first time.
I can't remember what it's called but the seeds are a delicate purple colour and I love the way they waggle in the breeze.
After gathering a bunch of interesting shapes and textures I took them to the Tap gallery for a lesson in a process called cyanotype.
My teacher, Emma of co-exist, showed me how to mix the ingredients and coat the paper to make it light sensitive. Then I laid my grassy tableau and took the whole piece outside into the sunshine.
