Raimond de Weerdt I Cyanotype Photograms - All You Need Is Blue
With little or no photographic knowledge it is possible to create beautiful images with the cyanotype process. Images can be printed on a range of surfaces such as fine art papers and cloth. Cyanotypes can be used to create fine art prints, books, bespoke cards and wall hangings. Cyanotype prints are archival and will last for many decades.
This workshop will show students how to make a photogram and how to create negatives for Cyanotype prints from iPhone pictures, digital files and other printed images.
This weekend workshop is fun and informative and students will return home with a collection of beautifully hand printed Cyanotypes.
Suitable for all levels.
Cyanotype printing is a photographic printing process invented by Sir John Herschel (1792–1871) in 1842. Also known as shadowgraphs or blue prints, this relatively simple process produces prints that are cyan blue.
One of the first pioneers to put the cyanotype process to the test was Anna Atkins who, in 1843, produced a book illustrated with cyanotypes.
This class will be held at Shop 4/10 Station St, Bangalow.
