Event description

Description

Learn from artist Raimond de Weerdt about the historic Cyanotype process and how to make your own blue prints. Participants of this workshop will use botanical specimens, lace, cut paper and other common household objects to create one of a kind photograms on light sensitive paper. These working methods are the same as used by Anna Atkins, the first woman in history to illustrate a book with blue prints back in 1843.

Regardless of one’s artistic practice or choice of medium, the cyanotype process can offer a way of creating images for multiple uses, such as unique works on fine art paper or material such as silk,. Cyanotypes can be used to make bespoke cards and books. The cyanotype can also be used as a starting point to be added to with paint or water colours. The creative possibilities are endless.

With no knowledge about photography or printmaking it is possible to get great results using the Cyanotype process. Participants are expected to exit the workshop with a collection of their own hand-printed works.
