Cyanotype (Sun Prints)

Cyanotype is one of a number of alternative photo printing techniques invented in the 1800s. This is a very simple process that can be done by children to make easy ‘sun prints’ but also can yield beautiful results as toned art prints.

Younger participants will make sun prints placing objects on sensitized paper, exposing in the good old sunshine, and washing the paper with the garden hose. Adults will coat their own paper and will make contact prints using digital negatives from an image you provide. You have the option to retain the cyanotype’s characteristic blue color or tone the image in a variety of solutions offered (red wine, tannic acid, green tea, etc).

Duration: half day (2-4 hours)
Capacity: 8 students
Fee: $60 per person. Children and family rates available.
