Learn to make cyanotype prints from the original 1842 formula created by photographic pioneer Sir John Herschel. The workshop will introduce cyanotype and its various uses—from photography to printmaking to collage to fiber arts to installation art. You will learn how to mix the chemistry, coat paper, expose, and process prints. Instruction will also be given on printing digital negatives from an inkjet printer to make cyanotypes from your own digital photographs. Materials for printing are included in the course fee. You are encouraged to bring any two-dimensional objects (pressed flowers, leaves, lace, etc.) and digital photographs you would like to print.
