Cyanotype

The latest course this summer here at East London Printmakers, running this 25th June: 10:00am ­– 4:30pm, course leader – Lucy Smith. 

Cyanotype is one of the earliest forms of photographic process, distinctive for its Prussian blue monochrome prints. The process involves contact printing with paper coated in light-sensitive solution, either using photographic negatives, or making photograms of objects and other materials. The process is easy to learn, ideal for experimentation, and can be done at home using daylight.

During this introductory one-day course you will get an overview of the Cyanotype process, learn how to prepare your own light-sensitive Cyanotype paper, explore a number of alternative sources of ‘negative’ to print with and practice exposing and developing the paper to produce prints.

Sadly this course is already fully booked, but stay tuned to see it return next year.
