On arrival you will receive a refreshing summer drink and meet Belmont’s head gardener who can answer any questions you may have about the stunning garden & grounds. Karen will then demonstrate the art of botanical cyanotype printing before offering you the chance to create your very own print. This is a beautiful process and is very much at the foundation of the photographic documentation of plants and flowers, dating back to the very inception of photography itself.
You will have the chance to make your own prints and there will be extra papers to purchase should you wish to continue your practise at home. You will also have the opportunity to pick and press flowers from the Belmont Gardens.
You will also spend time in the gardens with your camera and amongst the tall grass meadows as the sun goes down, perfectly encapsulating the light of golden hour and truly the best way to complete the evening. After the event each guest will be posted their dried cyanotype prints along with any pressed flowers and a photo taken on the evening.
In the event of rain
Should we be unfortunate enough to have some proper British weather, we will have the shelter and space of the beautiful garden greenhouses to share the evening together.
