Journey into the past and discover the beauty and simplicity of the cyanotype photographic process. We will briefly explore the history of the cyanotype process, and view samples of successful cyanotype images before creating our own. Students will learn how to make a digital negative, examine several methods for
applying the cyanotype emulsion on paper, and be introduced to the ultraviolet light box as a method of image exposure. This workshop will also introduce students to several household items that may be used to tone their finished cyanotype prints. No previous photographic knowledge is required for this workshop.
Students will need to provide a picture to create their digital negative. The best approach will be to store an image on a flash drive or portable hard drive to bring to class. Students will gain an understanding of making cyanotypes as well as become familiar with the necessary tools and methodology for continued cyanotype success.
