A two part painting and photography project which investigates the geology of the DerwentWISE area. The projects were jointly delivered with the National Stone centre and aimed to increased peoples understanding of the landscape of the Derwent Valley by increasing understanding the underpinning geology.
Activities included taking site photographs, sharing techniques of using both cameras and camera-phones and experimenting with making cyanotypes using leaves, stones etc. from the landscape to mask areas of the paper from exposure to the light, before washing off in water, to leave blue images and patterns. Workshops were also held making felt pieces and painting with local amateur artists.
