Cyanotypes for Beginners - $134.84
The cyanotype process is a relatively easy, yet endlessly versatile photographic process. It can be used on a number of surfaces, including paper and fabric as well as glass and wood. The initial natural color is a beautiful deep blue, but through toning, the color can range to grays, browns and black. It can be used in combination with a wide range of other media. In this workshop, participants will learn the simple mixing of the chemical emulsion, explore various ways of making both photographic and non-photographic negatives, use some simple toners, and enjoy the process of exposing and developing their own images on paper and fabric. All participants will leave with enough emulsion to go home and make more cyanotypes on their own. No darkroom or special photographic experience is necessary!
