Introduction to cyanotype

Cyanotype is an easy photographic printing process that uses sunshine to aid in the creation of beautiful blue coloured prints. By arranging items onto paper prepared with a photo emulsion and then exposed to sunlight, you will create 3 or 4 unique cyanotype images. By the end of the workshop, one of your prints will become a completed piece of art ready to display in your home!

Cyanotype artists will often use flowers, leaves, and other plant life forms to create their compositions. Another popular object of choice is glass. Its transparent quality can produce many different tones of blue, which adds a marvelous depth and richness to the image. Prepare to be amazed by this magical process!

cyanotype: Further Exploration

For those who love the cyanotype process and are keen to experiment beyond the basics…

In this 3-hour workshop, participants will create more complex cyanotype images through new techniques that will add depth, texture, and greater tonal range. Come prepared with an open
mind and willingness to explore a variety of additional materials including vinegar, turmeric, dish
