Cyanotype is an early form of photography known for its rich blues. In this one-day workshop we will create photograms on paper (one-of-a-kind direct prints from found objects). We will also print photographs from our own digital negatives made in advance of the class. We will expose our prints by means of artificial light in the studio and, weather permitting, in sunlight. We will learn how to tone prints - lightening and darkening, and altering the characteristic blue color. Watercolor paper and light-sensitive chemicals will be provided. No prior experience necessary.

 

*Chemicals and paper are included in the class fee. The instructor will reach out to students prior to the class with information about what to bring*
