Photography – Fall One-Week Session
September 19-25, 2021
Cyanotype on Fabric
Cyanotype is an inexpensive and versatile photographic process dating to the 1840s that produces rich, monochrome images. This workshop will explore the possibilities of cyanotype with fabric as our ground. We’ll cover chemistry, fabric selection, preparation methods, and optimizing digital negatives made from digital image files, scans, or film negatives. We’ll move beyond basic blue and experiment with bleaching and toning to alter color and mood. Students will gain the knowledge and skills needed to achieve a range of effects as well as set up their own practice. All levels.
