Cyanotype prints

Fully Booked

Learn to make Cyanotype prints with artist Christine Johnson.

Christine’s workshop will bring the magic of the Cyanotype process alive using Australian native plant material and digital negatives.

Cyanotype is a simple printing process that produces a dream-like blue image. The process uses a mixture of iron compounds, which when exposed to sunlight and then washed out in water oxidises to create rich Prussian blue images.

The technique was invented in 1841 by Sir John Herschel and was first used by botanist Anna Atkins to record botanical specimens for her scientific reference book, British Algae.

More information on what to bring will be provided to participants after booking a place.
