Cleveland Print Room says
This workshop is an investigation into the expressive possibilities of the cyanotype process and will cover and demonstrate the techniques and procedures used for making these aptly named blue-toned prints. This class will feature a more traditional approach to the process by encouraging students to bring objects to contact print, focusing on botany, food, etc.

Students will learn the cyanotype process from start to finish, starting with the mixing of its iron-based, light sensitive emulsion, coating the paper with the emulsion and finally, by placing a negative or other objects on the coated paper and exposing it to a UV light source. Different chemistry formulas, emulsions, coating methods and paper choices will be discussed and can be experimented with.

Students should bring large format negatives, acetate negatives, or objects for contact printing. Any paper that students wish to experiment with (in addition to paper provided by the Print Room) should be brought in. Students may also email images to the Print Room more than one week in advance of the class for digital negatives and the instructor must be contacted at this time.

Class cost is $80 for members and $100 for non-members. Most materials are provided in with class cost, while extra paper and transparencies are additional and can be paid for at the class.

Artist Jeff Curtis whose photography focuses on alternative processes will teach this course.
