Cyanotype Photography With Laura Jackett

Cyanotype Photography With Laura Jackett In-Person

Magic happens! Transform plain white paper into a rich blue photograph. Participants will produce blue photographic prints using Cyanotype, one of the earliest and most beautiful non-silver processes in photography. This workshop, photographic in nature, requires no darkroom or extensive equipment.

We’ll take something old and something blue and give it a new interpretation. These blue prints are made with the help of the sun so bring your sunglasses. Participants will coat paper with a light sensitive solution using a foam brush and work on their negatives. To make a negative, students may draw on a transparent sheet using a permanent marker, cut out and tape down pieces of old photographic negatives, or use the copy machine to transfer a previously created image to a transparent sheet. Participants will place their negative and interestingly shaped objects such as stencils on their now dry paper and carry outside to the sun. Exposure takes approximately five to ten minutes. For development, the paper is placed under running water for five minutes. Afterwards, the images are hung up to dry for about one hour. This workshop is a lot of fun! For children 12 and under.
