Instructor: Mariajosé Fernández-Plenge
Sunday, October 27
11am - 2pm
No prior experience is needed, and beginners are welcome!
This workshop is a hands-on introduction to the possibilities of the Cyanotype process, a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print.
By the end of class, students will have learned:
the chemistry behind the cyanotype process
how to prepare the paper
how to expose the paper to sunlight or an artificial UV light source
how to develop their prints
Students can bring small, flat objects to class that inspire them to make photograms. Some examples would be: leaves, pressed flowers, feathers, string, wire, paper cut-outs, and other semi-transparent materials like lace or open weave fabrics.
Students can also bring their own black and white negatives. We encourage bringing medium format, (2 ¼ x 2 ¼ in.) and large format negatives, (4 x 5 in.), that are well exposed. Digital negatives are welcome as well.
All other materials will be provided for a fee of $30.00 payable in cash directly to the instructor.
