- Line drawing cyanotypes
6 November 2021
10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Cyanotypes can be created using line drawings. This unique technique involves making a film negative by scratching through a layer of ink on a transparency film. The ink is rolled onto the film and dried. Using an etching needle you create your drawing by scratching through the thin layer of ink on the film; this process is not unlike drawing into a ground on a metal plate (for intaglio work).
The drawing on the film is placed in contact with the prepared cyanotype paper and exposed in sunlight or a UV light unit. The cyanotypes are then washed out in tap water. Each participant will make an edition of 4 cyanotypes, with a couple of proof prints.
A workshop that explores a combination of line drawing and the early photographic technique of cyanotype, no previous experience necessary.
Fee includes light lunch and all materials: $250
Maximum 4 participants. Covid-safe lunch in outdoor area, in beautiful garden setting.
