Learn to create beautiful cyanotype prints with deeper blues and a longer tonal range using the modern cyanotype printing process in this hands-on workshop.
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 artist Sally Ayre covers proper coating, exposing, and developing techniques for Cyanotype.
