April 7, 11am-3pm
Cyanotype Workshop

A cyanotype is a historic photographic process invented in 1842. Rather than utilizing silver, this method employs a combination of iron salts, and is one of the most stable and archival processes in photography. Cyanotype images are characterized by their Prussian blue color.

In this workshop, you will create your own cyanotypes, using either a contact printing method, or a photogram, using flat objects you bring to class.

Paper will be coated in advance, so you need bring only your film negative and photogram objects. We will teach you how to lay out, expose, and develop your images. At the end of the workshop, you will bring home 5 4x5 images.

** If you need assistance printing a photograph negative, arrangements may be made in advance.

This workshop will be taught by Sharifa Moore, part of the 2019 graduating class, at CU Denver. Sharifa received a EUReCA fellowship to conduct extensive research on the cyanotype process in the fall of 2018.
