The Cyanotype: This forgotten photographic printing process from the 19th century was invented by Sir John Herschel (1792–1871) in 1842. Also known as shadowgraphs or blue prints, this simple process produces prints that are cyan blue.
Without any photographic knowledge or the need for a darkroom, it is possible to create beautiful images with the cyanotype process. Images can be printed on a range of surfaces such as fine art papers, silk and cloth. Cyanotypes can be used to create fine art prints, books, hand-made cards and wall hangings. Cyanotype prints are archival and will last for many decades.
This introductory workshop will teach you the skills and techniques to create your very own Cyanotype images using this historic and fascinating process. Participants will take home a collection of Cyanotypes created in the workshop.
Students a required to bring along their own paper and a range of objects for example flowers, leaves, lace or and negatives to create images from. All other materials are supplied by the workshop organizer.
