Cyanotypes | Alternative Processes | One Day Workshop

A one-day alternative process workshop introduces the wonders and possibilities of printing your negatives or creating silhouette collages on blue colored Cyanotypes using many paper types and fabric.

Cyanotypes can be printed onto any 2D surface and use UV light to create a print. Use your imagination to open up a world of creative possibilities in this traditional alternative photographic process workshop.

Students will learn coating and drying techniques on various surfaces. They will also discuss the preparation of a variety of surfaces including paper and cloth. Students will then prepare, coat and dry their projects.  Then students will create Cyanotype prints on readied substrates. After printing you will explore finishing options for this unique process. 


Digital or traditional negatives ready for printing or items for collaged photogram like cyanotypes darkroom experience is not necessary.


This class has a minimum of 4 participants and has a maximum of 10 participants.


Bring your favorite negatives.  We will provide a variety of materials for students to choose from for their project including paper, and fabric. We will also provide cyanotype chemistry, and necessary equipment. We encourage students to bring materials they would like to work with in this process. For this workshop we recommend porous surfaces such as paper, and fabric that do not need special pre-treatment. Glass, metal, and, ceramics are not recommended for this introductory workshop.
