Join Collections Officer, Paul Adair, who will introduce you to the basics of cyanotype printmaking, its history and chemistry!
Learn how to create beautiful blue prints using the cyanotype process in this hands-on workshop inspired by the Perth Art Gallery’s lantern slide photographic collection. In this workshop, you will mix the chemicals, coat your paper and expose it. Once dry, make your own natural history-inspired cyanotype prints to take home. All materials will be provided but feel free to bring any pressed flowers, leaves or feathers that you might want to print with.
Cyanotype is a camera-less photographic printing process which produces a cyan-blue print when a chemical-coated surface, often paper is exposed to UV light. Once the negative or materials on the surface are removed and it is fully dry the process is complete.
