What you'll do

Cyanotype or sun print is an alternative photographic process that harks back to the beginning of photography. As the name suggests you will create delicate blue images using sunlight to expose your prints. Students are asked to bring their own photographs(or email in advance), found images, drawings or small objects such as leaves, feathers etc. Using a digital printer we will copy these images/objects onto acetate to create a negative. Back in the pop up darkroom we will mix raw chemicals and learn how to make our own photographic paper. After painting the light sensitive emulsion onto thick artist paper we will use our acetate negatives or actual objects to create a contact printed photograph. In today’s digital world this is a wonderful process in which to create one off, personal and painterly blue images that everyone will love! You will leave the workshop understanding the techniques employed by the early photographers, having created 3-4 prints!
