The cyanotype is often the first process you will encounter in alternative/non-silver process photography. The reason for this is the simplicity in the technique and the likelihood you will make a successful print in a short period of time! This one-day workshop will be broken down into two parts, covering the basic history and introduction to the cyanotype process, toning your final prints (in case blue isn’t right for your subject, as well as explore alternative surfaces on which to print cyanotypes. No prior photographic knowledge is required. Each artist will take home 3 final cyanotype prints, along with an information packet on how to continue making cyanotypes at home, and a Hake brush for coating your paper.
