This workshop offers the experience of combining contemporary image-making with one of the earliest photographic printing processes. Cyanotype is a non-silver process that can be combined or used independently to create distinctive Blue toned imagery on natural materials such as silk or art papers. This hands-on workshop with Sally Ayre covers proper coating, exposing, and developing techniques for Cyanotype.

For this workshop, you must bring your own large format or 4x5 negatives.  If you need to print digital negatives, Gallery 44 can provide this service only for the purposes of this workshop.  You can print digital negatives maximum 16" wide for $8/square foot.  Please inquire about this service upon registration.  You must submit your files at least 2 weeks prior to the workshop in order to have them for the session.
