Blue is the world’s favorite color! Learn the history and process of cyanotype and learn about contemporary artists using cyanotype in their practice. Create hand drawn negatives and use objects to make blue photograms. All steps in the cyanotype process will be demonstrated. Make several prints with prepared coated paper provided in the class kit.
A kit is included and will be shipped to students two weeks before class. The kit contains hand coated cyanotype watercolor paper, a DIY contact frame, and tracing paper to create hand drawn negatives.

Materials to Bring:
- Various objects that are fairly flat such as keys, buttons, lace, botanicals, plant leaves, flowers, tools, photo negatives, anything that is translucent….
- Clipboard or cardboard (cardboard included in kit)
- Binder clips or clothespins to hold tracing paper onto cardboard or clipboard
