Sunday 26th 

A full day exploring Cyanotype Blueprinting ~

beautiful play of light and shadow. 

You will take home two pieces of your own unique artwork

 

 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 (ultra violet) light-sensitive sheet of paper. Areas where light does not hit sensitized material remains white.

Instead of utilizing photographs

~ Stephanie favors a much longer method in achieving her unique blueprints.

Before cutting and placing onto the prepared surface , Steph draws her designs onto translucent paper. Once the sun works her magic and the paper left to dry ~ Stephanie takes a white ink pen and adds a little more ornamentation, making each cyanotype a truly original artwork.

This is the exact method everyone will learn in this 5 hour workshop.

Every student will walk away with two unique artworks to frame for your home. 
Size A4 and A3

Includes all art materials.
