About The Workshop

Experience one of the earliest process of creating images with light. Cyanotype printing also fondly known as sun printing is a photographic process that produces cyan-blue image from iron metals exposed to UV light. In this workshop, the artist or art instructor will share the method of producing blueprints anywhere, indoor or outdoors without the use of a camera or special darkroom.
