The True Blue Print

Introduction to Cyanotype Photography
PAST EVENT: Sun, Aug 07, 2016

The alternative process of photography known as cyanotype has been in existence since the 1850’s, and its practice is still alive and well today. Step back in time and experiment with this fun medium alongside local artist Miles Lewis in a special three-hour workshop.

The class will focus on cyanotype’s tremendous experimental potential as Lewis guides students through the process. Every student will leave this workshop with three to four finished prints made through three different printing methods: hand-painted, photogram and digital photo negative.

Please note that this workshop takes place at Valley Print Studio, a residential building in Woodland Hills. Street parking is available nearby. Cost of workshop includes materials, however it is recommended that students bring objects that cast interesting shadows and any of their own photo-negatives, as well as fine-arts papers that they would like to test in the process.
