During this three-day immersion workshop you will learn the art of cyanotype printing, a technique that rivals the tonal range and seductive quality of platinum prints. By carefully utilizing the modern cyanotype process and fine-tuning a set of digital negatives, workshop participants will learn to make pristine cyanotype prints.

This 19th century printing process is as versatile and economical as it is beautiful. Daniel Coburn, master of alternative process printing and beloved teacher, will instruct students on how to tone cyanotype prints with a variety of rich colors and hues. This process is relatively non-toxic, and printing techniques can be carried out in normal ambient light, which makes this printing technique ideal for a home workshop or studio.

Prerequisites: A basic knowledge of Photoshop is all that is needed to participate in this workshop! Photographers and artists of all skill levels can learn and enjoy this printing process, and experimentation is highly encouraged!
