Learn to create one-of-a-kind handmade cyanotype prints! Developed in 1842 by Sir John Herschel, the cyanotype is a camera-less photographic printing process that uses a light sensitive emulsion to create a cyan-blue print. Harnessing the power of the sun, we will arrange objects and botanical specimens on paper to create beautiful unique prints. Materials will be provided however participants are encouraged to bring their own small objects to experiment with.
