ABOUT THE WORKSHOPCyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print.Its unique colour is also known as Berliner Blau.
This workshop is for beginners. If you don’t know anything about art or cyanotypes, you are in the right place. We stick to the basics of this printing technique so you can focus on the creative part.After this workshop, you can start to make your cyanotype prints by yourself.
The workshop will be more fun if you could make time for digital negatives or prepare flat and unique-shaped objects. But it’s also alright to just bring your body and creativity. We have basic art materials to draw and paint your photo negative images.
