Cyanotype Magic

Duration: 1 day workshop
Date: July 30, 2023
Time: 10am – 3pm

This full-day workshop will introduce you to cyanotype, one of the first alternative photographic processes ever developed. Create beautifully detailed prints by exposing virtually any object to the sun. You will design, expose and develop your photograms and cyanotypes using plants, photographic negatives and other objects.

Discover the magic of this exciting and sometimes unpredictable sun printing medium. The result will be a selection of beautiful prints in monochromatic Prussian blue that can be framed, quilted or used in mixed media art.

The instructor will cover:

  • How to properly mix the cyanotype solution
  • Preparing various substrates with the solution
  • Process, guidelines and exposure of prints
  • Working with objects, botanicals & photo negatives
  • Composition & finishing options
  • Alternative methods beyond cyanotype

Cost: $125, prices not subject to GST
