Wet Cyanotype Printing
Wet cyanotype is a form of sun printing that becomes highly experimental with the addition of kitchen chemistry. Begin by coating papers in a dark room and leaving them to dry. Then, arrange compositions with a focus on natural forms, both brought and foraged. Discuss the basics of traditional cyanotype, explore how to intervene with wet techniques to create a variety of spontaneous effects, and learn about bleaching, toning, and layering. On day two, begin printing compositions in the sun and experimenting with wet techniques. The beauty of this process is in its unpredictability and accessibility. All levels welcome.
