About this workshop

An anthotype is a photograph made of ground up plant matter. Beetroot, raspberries, leaves, and flower petals (and more) are all photosensitive.

Join artist Nettie Edwards for a step-by-step introduction to printing photographs from plants. Participants will learn about the deep history of the anthotype process and create their own original artwork. All materials will be provided.


Nettie Edwards is an award-winning artist and photographic experimenter. Her practice combines contemporary digital imaging technology, historical photographic processes, and archival research. Since 2014, she has worked almost exclusively with sustainable processes.


This workshop is held in person only at the Weston Library.
