Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that uses two chemicals and a uv light and was first developed by John Hershel in 1842.
A process much used during the 20th century to reproduce technical drawings, it is a form of contact print which results in a cyan-blue image.
In this workshop you will learn how to mix the chemicals, coat the paper and create your own cyanotype prints while experimenting with different approaches.
You’ll experiment using objects and learn how to create simple negatives by drawing and marking on acetate paper.
If you have a picture you would like to use you will be asked to send this beforehand for the facilitator to create a cyanotype negative.
All materials will be provided
