Cyanotype Blue Printing with Lindsay Duncanson

The ‘Cyanotype’ (sometimes called a blue print or sun print), is a Victorian photographic process which has had a recent revival.

By pacing objects on paper or fabric coated with special chemicals and exposing it to sunlight or UV light we can make a beautiful deep blue image.

Over the 5 weeks we will learn how to make Cyanotypes including mixing the chemistry and applying it to different materials- fabrics, papers, and even wood.

We will then creative beautiful images using acetates, plants, drawings, objects as a simple and accessible way to get creative with a little science.

In addition I will also introduce Anthotypes as a lovely slow way to make plant based prints using kitchen cupboard chemistry!
