Cyanotype is one of the earliest forms of photography, dating back to 1842. This hands-on cyanotype workshop will introduce you to making these exquisite Prussian blue and white images and will give you all the information and practical experience to be able to do this at home. The process lends itself to experimentation. Through the workshop you will gain an overview of the cyanotype process, learn how to prepare light-sensitive cyanotype paper, explore a number of alternative sources of ‘negative’ to print with and practise exposing and developing the paper to produce prints. You will go home with at least two beautiful cyanotype prints. With artist and photographer Kit Martin.
(Materials will be provided, but feel free to bring, if you like: things that you would like to make prints of, up to about A4 in size. For example: feathers, leaves/plants, semi-transparent materials, ideas for drawings or paper cut-outs to do on the day, or printouts of photographic images on tracing paper or acetate (printed as a negative). There will also be an opportunity to gather materials from the grounds of the Castle. N.B. No cameras are needed!)
All our adult workshops include tea/coffee and cake at breaks. Please bring a packed lunch.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Cyanotypes are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
