Turmeric Anthotype Prints Workshop

Turmeric anthotype print by Peggy Fussel
Thursday, June 27, 5PM - 7PM
Rehearsal Hall
Meenakashi Ghadial

Join Tett Artist-in-Residence Meenakashi Ghadial on the Summer Solstice for a Turmeric Anthotype printing workshop. Turmeric, known for its vibrant colour and integral role in Indian cuisine, contains curcumin, a compound that acts as a photosensitizer. This means it reacts chemically when exposed to light, making it ideal for printing images using a technique called anthotype.


Anthotype, developed in the 19th century, utilizes plant emulsions and sun exposure to produce images on porous surfaces such as paper and cloth. During the workshop, participants will produce three original prints using this unique method. Participants will  gain hands-on experience with a new printmaking technique that can be easily done at home.


Ages 16+
