Cyanotype is a photographic process in which an image is developed on paper with iron-containing chemicals and UV light. The result is an image with white lines on a blue background - typically seen in blueprints.
Cyanotype is an interesting way to create a blueprint of a plant, photo or drawing. To expose a photo, it should be digitally submitted to us at least 1 day in advance, and we will create a negative..
If desired, the image can also be displayed on fabric, such as a cloth shopping bag. In this case, the fabric must be washed in the washing machine (without softener) and ironed before the workshop. As it takes time for the fabric to dry after being coated in cyanotype, it is worth booking a tour of the museum at the same time.
