Cyanotype is a camera-less photographic printing process invented in 1842. There is a renewed interest in the medium today. In this one-day workshop we will print photograms (one-of-a-kind direct prints from plants and found objects). We will also print from negatives made on a computer or copy machine from pre-existing photos or drawings. Our prints will be exposed in artificial light in the studio and, weather permitting, in sunlight. We will learn how to tone prints to alter the print’s blue color and will discuss further explorations that students can undertake on their own. Watercolor paper and cyanotype chemicals will be provided. No prior experience necessary.
