Learn this 19th century photographic printing process, also known as shadowgraphs or blue-prints, which can be used to create fine art prints, cards or bespoke books.
The Cyanotype: This forgotten photographic printing process from the 19th century was invented by Sir John Herschel (1792–1871) in 1842. Also known as shadowgraphs or blue-prints, this fascinating photographic printing process can be used to create fine art prints, cards or bespoke books. Without any photographic knowledge or specialist equipment, it is possible to create beautiful images with the cyanotype process. Images can be printed on a range of surfaces such as fine art papers, silk and cloth. Cyanotype prints are archival and will last for many decades.
We'll provide all other materials for this course including archival papers, chemicals and equipment ($20). Tea and coffee will be provided in the staffroom for breaks.
Crafters and artists looking for a new form of expression. Photographers looking for an alternative way of presenting their images. Anyone who wants to learn about an 'older' artistic technique of photography.
