Related Member: Daniel Coburn
During this immersive, 3-Day workshop you will learn to make cyanotype prints that rival the tonal range and seductive quality of platinum prints. By carefully utilizing the Modern Cyanotype process and fine-tuning a set of digital negatives, workshop participants will learn to make pristine Cyanotype prints. This nineteenth century process is as versatile and economical as it is beautiful. Instruction will include specific details on how to tone cyanotype prints a variety of rich colors and hues. It's relatively non-toxic, and printing techniques can be carried out in normal room light, which makes this printing technique ideal for a home workshop or studio.
