TUTOR: JULIE DOWNIE
Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. In this weekend intensive course students will learn the basics of the alternative photo/print processes and create contemporary cyanotypes. Students will explore and experiment with some of the earliest ways of making photographs; techniques now used by photographic artists who are re-thinking these alternative processes. The course wil also allow for experimentation with the basic properties of photography – objects, light and the different ways images can be recorded onto paper both inside and outside the darkroom. These are simple processes that require no previous darkroom experience, but they can create unique and beautiful prints as a result. Students will be encouraged to create a series of work during the weekend course based on a personal collection of objects, photos, or mark making. There is no toxic product handling during the workshop and no toxic fume exposure.
- All photo lab material and equipment included
- This workshop may require a little bit of preparation from the students (images, objects...) and an email will be sent out by Julie a week prior to starting the course that will give a full explanation.
- Limited space available. For health and safety in the dark room, this class can only take a small number of students.
THE 6 WEEKS COURSE WILL RUN OVER 7 WEEKS FROM TUESDAY EVENING 21 FEBRUARY TO TUESDAY 4 APRIL (NO CLASS ON 14 MARCH)
EACH CLASS WILL START AT 6PM AND FINISH AT 9PM.
