You have already learned about the history and aspects of basic cyanotype printing, so learn about the other aspects of the process. We will explore the original process by Sir John Herschel, different toning procedures, combining negatives with placed objects and printing cyanotypes on glass plates. 

Attendees should come prepared with negatives, all other materials will be provided.


ABOUT CYANOTYPE:
Discovered by Sir John Herschel in 1842, just three years after the invention of photography, cyanotype is the photographic blueprint. Historically, engineers used this to make copies and Anna Atkins is famously known for her series of cyanotypes using plant specimen. Used in contemporary practice, cyanotype is highly versatile and can be used with fabric, canvas and even combined with other techniques such as platinum or gum bichromate. 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Those seeking more from the cyanotype process.

TUITION INFO:
All materials are provided, but students should bring their own negatives or objects to make photograms.

ACCOMMODATIONS:
