Cyanotype or sun print is an antique photographic printing process developed in the 1800s by surrealist artist Man Ray. In this workshop we will create striking blue prints on fine art paper and cloth by using a combination of two safe chemicals that, when mixed together and exposed under sunlight, produce a cyan coloured print… the original ‘blueprint’.
What students will learn from this workshop:
- a little about the history and potential of Cyanotype
- the complete cyanotype process
- Experiment on paper and fabric
What students will take home:
- A number of prints or cards on fine art paper and cloth.
