Thurs 20 Oct 1pm - 5pm

In stock



Thursday 20 October, 1pm – 5pm
Ages 12 – 16
The cyanotype process is one of the earliest photographic processes and produces a beautiful cyan blue print. This type of printing is unique in that it is a form of photography that does not require a camera or a darkroom meaning you can replicate what you have learned on the course at home.
What to expect
During this creative afternoon workshop you will learn how to create cyanotype prints by coating, exposing and developing images on paper. You will have the opportunity to experiment with the process in a variety of ways to produce a collection of unique works you can take home and enjoy. You will be shown how to mix the chemicals, coat your paper and once dry how to expose your images using both daylight and UV lights. You will have plenty of opportunity to experiment and we will look at different ways to create images including making photograms with plants, flowers, and found objects, using photographic negatives as well as drawing and mark making onto acetate.
What to bring
All materials will be provided. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own objects with them on the day; fresh or dried plants and flowers or photographic negatives and images that can be traced. Katherine is on hand to advise on what objects will be suitable. You will get messy so wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty. Juice, water and biscuits will be provided however please ensure your child has had lunch before the workshop. A sketchbook, pencil and a water bottle would be helpful to bring along!
