Description

Cyanotype printing is photographic printing process invented in the early 1840s. Also know as shadowgraphs or blue prints this relatively simple process produces prints that are cyan blue. One of the first pioneers to put the cyanotype process to the test was Anna Atkins who in 1843 produced a book illustrated with cyanotypes.

With little or no photographic knowledge 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 and cloth by exposing objects on the medium in the sun. We will use a range of objects to block out light and create images from, including, flowers, leaves, lace, stencils and negatives to create 'blueprint' images.

This introductory workshop will walk students through the steps of creating images using this historic and fascinating process.
