View Website

n 1842, the astronomer Sir John Herschel discovered the cyanotype process, a photographic blueprint which was utilized extensively for its ability to quickly reproduce drawings and notes using the sun's rays. In this class led by former Darkroom resident Kate Ovaska, we will experiment with materials as surfaces for cyanotypes including: textured paper, unglazed ceramic tiles, wood, and fabric. By the end of the class, you will understand the chemistry behind a cyanotype print as well as how to prepare, expose, and develop them.
