Cyanotype Botanical Print Workshop

July 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

$30

Cyanotype is an early photographic printing process distinctive for its rich indigo colour

  • During this 1.5-hour workshop, you will be introduced to the process of making a botanical cyanotype – no experience necessary
  • Each participant will print 2 cyanotypes on a 9 x 12 in. watercolour paper
  • You will prepare your paper for exposure to the sun, and we’ll then walk over to the parkette at the back of the café to expose your future masterpieces
  • Once ready we’ll go back inside to process the print and dry them
  • We’ll review each work and give some feedback

What is included:

All of your material – Ink for cyanotype, watercolor paper, rubber gloves, foam brushes.

What do you need to bring:

You will need to bring some leaves/flowers/plants that you have pressed as it will give a more crisp image to your print (I’ll have some extra just in case)

You will also need to bring an apron or an old shirt as the ink could stain your clothing
