Explore one of the earliest historical photographic processes: the cyanotype, and get a glimpse into other alternative photographic techniques.

Once we have covered the history and theory of the exciting cyanotype process, you will learn how to create cyanotype prints on paper and cotton using botanical specimens, found objects, digital negatives and sunlight.


You will learn:

  • about tools, light sensitive solutions, and surfaces,
  • how to prepare paper and print your prints,
  • to create unique sun prints using camera-less techniques, and
  • how to make and use digital negatives.

During the class you will receive individual and group feedback on your work in progress. No experience or cameras are necessary.
