Cyanotype and Salt Printing
In this hands-on course, learn how to make beautiful blue, painterly prints simply and inexpensively — from digital or film photos. The Cyanotype process has been around since the 1840s, is made using the sun and water, and can be printed on almost any surface! Students will learn to make the chemicals, prepare paper and chemicals, and use or make negatives from film or digital photos. Then students will learn how to expose, develop and tone the prints with tea, coffee and other simple chemicals. This class will show you how to use this historical process in very versatile, creative ways to make unique, hand-made art. Please pack a lunch and snack.
*Prerequisite – Students should have basic to intermediate darkroom and photographic experience. The photo center will supply the chemistry and paper.
