Seeing Blue: Cyanotype Printing Process for Beginners with Katey Rissi

Saturday, April 11, 2020

In this class, students will learn the cyanotype printing process, a non-silver alternative photography/printing technique originally developed to create blueprints. Cyanotype printing is a simple but relatively obscure process that allows for lots of experimentation, and can be layered with other types of printmaking and photography processes to create intricate, dynamic images. You will explore the history of the process, from its origins as a way to print technical material, to its use to document the natural world, and its transition into an art technique. You will play with the different substrates that can be printed on (almost anything porous!), and create our own prints. You will learn about the different ways to make negatives, as well as contact printing with objects.
