Cyanotype – (english)
Duration : 6 hours
Level : Beginner
Date : April 20, 2024
Schedule : 9h30 am to 16h30 pm
The workshop will be conducted in English
This workshop is a hands-on introduction to cyanotype, an alternative photographic process that dates back to 1842. Cyanotypes are created using UV light and water to create a cyan-blue image. During this day of creative exploration, you’ll have the opportunity to experiment with classic cyanotypes (blue and white) as well as wet cyanotypes (more textured and colourful). Cyanotype images can be created from objects using the photogram technique or from negatives. This technique requires minimal equipment and you’ll leave with the knowledge to continue at home.
Note: If you plan to work with negatives, please prepare them in advance (contact Zocalo if necessary); you won’t have access to printers on the day of the workshop.
Materials: All basic materials are provided by the center.
