Have fun with the sun! In this three week introductory workshop, students will learn the basics of working with cyanotype, one of the earliest photographic processes. We will be using both pre-coated papers and working with light sensitive solution to prepare your own papers in the darkroom. Experiment with various materials, make beautiful blue contact prints from objects like plants, fabric, hand-cut stencils, hand-drawn films, and more.

Students are encouraged to bring an assortment of somewhat flat (or flattenable) items for exposure. Some suggestions include different kinds of flowers, leaves, feathers, textured fabrics, jewelry with interesting silhouettes, and other small items. Do a quick online image search of cyanotype for inspiration!

Paper sets and solution provided in the course of the class. Additional paper, films, and opaque markers available for purchase in studio.
