Cyanotype is one of the few non-silver techniques used to make photographic images the cyanotype was invented in the 1840s by English scientist and astronomer Sir John Herschel and it was Anne Atkin who brought it to its notoriety. In this workshop, you learn the basic principles and chemistry of cyanotypes. We also cover substrates, exposure and the possibilities of this historic process. You are encouraged to bring digital images, botanicals and collage materials from home to use for contact printing. Don’t fret if you can’t get your hands-on objects, we’ll have lots of options to work with. All other materials will be provided. This will be an introductory class and no experience necessary. Can be messy – bring an apron or wear clothes you don’t mind ruining.
