Details

Liked & Shared Photography Series – Learn about the cyanotype printing process and create your own images using this historic process.

Cyanotype: The Forgotten Photography Printing Process is a four hour workshop (including lunch) with Raimond de Weerdt that will teach you the skills and techniques to create your very own cyanotype images using this historic and fascinating process. Every workshop participant will take home a collection of cyanotype prints created in the workshop.

Also known as shadowgraphs or blue prints, this simple process produces prints that are cyan blue.

Without any photographic knowledge or the need for a darkroom, it is possible to create beautiful images with the cyanotype process. Images can be printed not only on paper, but on textiles as well such as silk, linen, cotton and calico. Cyanotypes can be used to create fine art prints, books, handmade cards and wall hangings. Cyanotype prints are archival and will last for many decades.

When: Sunday 1 May 2022, 10:00am – 2:00pm DST.

Cost: $60

Where: Tweed Regional Museum – Murwillumbah

Participants can bring along a range of objects to the workshop to create prints from; for example flowers, leaves and other cuttings from the garden. Materials such as lace and doilies work really well too. All other materials provided.

Bookings essential due to limited capacity. Each booking includes lunch.
