Cyanotype

The Cyanotype process is an early form of photography discovered in the 1840s and then became a popular method of documenting botanical specimens. Images will be created by laying various objects or organic specimens onto a prepared photosensitive base.  The base when exposed to daylight creates detailed negative shapes which in turn develops into a beautiful Cyan blue colour. Learn how to mix and prepare solutions, and create your Cyanotypes.

This will be an experimental workshop where you will produce several unique images using this light sensitive process. Students are encouraged to bring along a selection of objects to use for printing; feathers, lace, plants, any pressed samples, wire, string, stencils etc. You have the option to decorate a tote bag if you wish.

Tutor will provide materials for this workshop. This cost is included in your course fee. The cost of the tote bag is extra and payable to your tutor on the day.

This workshop is suitable for both beginners and improvers.

A picnic lunch will be provided.
