Try something new with this workshop held at West Elm, Tottenham Court Road, London.

Learn the process and techniques used to create your own piece of art, and bring along objects from home that you want to make prints of.

Cyanotype is one of the earliest forms of photographic process (It dates back to the mid-1800s) distinctive for its Prussian blue monochrome prints produced in sunlight. This is an effective way of introducing newcomers to photography and the principles of light and light sensitive materials

With a great combination of vintage, hand made and in house designed products, A Room In My House is a great store for gifts, homeware and prints. 

The brand has both an lovely online independent shop as well as a well-curated store on the popular marketplace, Etsy

The brand divides their ranges between the two selling areas with the vintage homeware being in the Etsy store together with handmade products and prints; and then solely their in-house designed goods, in their own webshop

Their vintage collection, on Etsy, includes glassware and ceramics from the 1950s-1970s and this is complimented by gorgeous handmade cushions in either vintage fabrics or crochet. 

Explore the main store for both photographic and typography inspired prints by the duo who run the brand, as well as stationery and cards. There’s even extra goodies including paperback letter racks – clever holders for photos, cards or letters made by hand from books, which make great gifts. 

Follow the brand on social media for news of new products and where to shop with them in person as well as news of extra products to buy that aren’t always available online.
