Cyanotype is a photographic process known for its blue color. It was famously used by a pioneer in photography, Anna Atkin, who is often coined the first female photographer. Students will learn the history, chemistry mixing, and coating techniques for making their own cyanotypes. This class is perfect for both beginners and those looking to get a refresher and/or refine their skill set.
Students are encouraged to consider and collect objects in advance for creating their photograms, including black and white negatives (film or digital negatives), botanical objects, stencils, and other small objects.
Level: All levels welcome – no experience necessary.
Registration closes April 20, 2022 to allow time for students to gather/purchase their materials. With your registration confirmation you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any initial handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” guide to using the Zoom video app.
