Cyanotype printing with Raimond de Weerdt – Create beautiful images without a camera

October 23 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

$120 – $130

This introductory workshop will teach you the skills and techniques to create your very own Cyanotype images using this historic and fascinating process.

The Cyanotype: This forgotten photographic printing process from the 19th century was invented by Sir John Herschel (1792–1871) in 1842. Also known as shadowgraphs or blue prints, this simple process produces prints that are cyan blue. One of the first pioneers to put the cyanotype process to the test was Anna Atkins who in 1843 produced a book illustrated with cyanotypes.

Without any photographic knowledge, or the need for a darkroom, it is possible to create beautiful images with the cyanotype process. Images can be printed on a range of surfaces such as fine art papers, silk and cloth. Cyanotypes can be used to create fine art prints, books, hand made cards and wall hangings. Cyanotype prints are archival and will last for many decades.
