Creations from the Yurt
Annie of Creations from the Yurt is an avid lover of nature and has always been fascinated by the different forms and symmetry found within the beautiful wild plants that inhabit our Cornish countryside. Throughout her Cornish childhood she spent endless hours making dens in hedgerows and tree houses in her local oak tree.
All prints are made in Annie’s yurt studio near Falmouth, using plants picked from the surrounding hedgerows. She uses these local plants to create beautiful plant impressions through a process called Cyanotype printing, also known as Blueprinting or sun prints, a traditional photographic process first discovered in 1842.
