Learn The Art Of Cyanotype Blueprinting
~ Upcoming Workshop ~
Originating in the 1840s ~ Cyanotype is a photographic printmaking process
widely known as the term "blueprint"
which was mostly used for large architectural & mechanical drawing reproduction.
Blueprints are created using equal ratios of Potassium ferricyanide and Ferric ammonium citrate (green) and a photographic negative or film positive placed onto a UV (ultraviolet) light-sensitive sheet of paper. Areas, where light does not hit sensitised material, remain white.
In this 6 hour workshop, students will experiment with wet cyanotype and double exposure using photographs, drawing techniques, foraged plants and shadow play.
~ Every student will walk away with unique artworks and a bundle of handmade postcards ~
Includes watercolour paper and cyanotype mixture
~ No previous skills required ~
Please note ~ students will need to send these through x2 photos and a basket of foraged nature
