About the event

Cyanotype printing is an early photographic method, often associated with botanical subjects. Prints are made by laying flowers, leaves or other objects on the photosensitive paper and exposing it to light. Alternatively, you can use a photographic negative to make the print.

This introductory course you will teach you how to make your own ‘blue prints’ using both techniques. You will learn how to mix up the cyanotype solution, paint it onto the paper, and expose and develop your prints. We will use flowers and plants from the garden to make your designs, or you can provide a photo that you would like to work from.

The course is 3 hours long and no previous experience is needed.


All materials will be provided. If you wish to work with an image of your own during the workshop, please send it to no later than May 1st, using the subject Botanical Cyanotype Course.
