Explore Cyanotype print making and celebrate World Cyanotype Day!
Cyanotype is a historical photographic print-making process, characterized by its rich monochromatic blues. It uses the power of the sun to make wonderful contact prints. In the late 1800s, this process was used to create botanical prints for documentation.
Cyanotype has since become a way to endlessly express yourself. September 24th is World Cyanotype day! Artists from around the world celebrate by creating and sharing their work.
In this workshop, local artist Jessie Swimeley will guide the group through the step-by-step process of making prints and starting their own cyanotype practice.
By the end of the workshop students will learn:
📖A brief history of the cyanotype process
🧪The chemistry behind the process
🎨How to prepare paper, expose, and develop prints
