Have you come across cyanotype printing before?
If not, you’re in for a treat – this is one of our favourite creative processes!
For August’s kit, with materials including these…
This is what we’ll be making…
Cyanotype is an early form of photography, where paper or fabric is made light sensitive using iron-based salts. You place objects on top of the paper, leave it out in the sunlight (or UV light), then wash it out, and you’re left with this indigo blue print showing detailed silhouettes.
They’re easy to make from home, no need for a dark room or any specialist equipment, and this month’s kit brings all you need together in one box!
No need to be a scientist either (although you will be for an afternoon, but shhhh) – all the materials are pre-measured, so you can focus on creating.
The kit contains all you need to make these 6 greetings cards, or could easily be adapted to dye your own papers or fabrics (use non-synthetic fabrics, like 100% cotton or silk).
This is a perfect craft for the Summer months (hello sunshine!) – you don’t need your own garden either, the sunlight part can easily be done in your local park or even a square of concrete.

Here’s what folk have said about us…
I couldn’t be happier with the February Craftiosity box as it was such a fun project, I have a great end product and the tools to use again. I think it’s a fantastic and unique subscription box that I know will be a hit with so many people! 9.2/10Heather
It was such a treat! The kit came beautifully packaged, I was little daunted when I saw the instructions for stitching the book together but it was actually really well explained and if I’d got stuck I could have watched a video for extra help.Leigh
A lovely box was handed to me by my postie (it’s too large to fit through the letterbox) which got me really excited. There’s something lovely about creating with your hands and I enjoyed sitting and making the pots.Jenny
