Learn about a XIX century photographic process in the Munster Valley. From the conception of a herbarium in photograms to the artistic printing of your photos, the cyanotype and its typical Prussian Blue offers a fantastic support to let your creativity run free.
After a presentation of the cyanotype process and an overview of the different ways to use it, the workshop starts with the preparation of the paper with the application of the chemistry that will make it photo-sensitive.
While the paper is drying, you will select the plants, leaves or objects with which to create your compositions. A first print in photogram is made on the sensitized paper.
This is an easy and fun way to learn about the different phases of the process: positioning of the work on the paper, ultraviolet exposure and development. The following prints are dedicated to the printing of your two photos on the sensitized paper.
We will enjoy a moment of conviviality over tea or coffee while your cyanotype is drying, an opportunity to talk about photography and old processes.
