Cyanotype Workshop With Kimberly Chiaris
Cyanotype is a photographic and light-sensitive printing process that produces a permanent cyan-blue print. This is a contact printing process that can be done without the use of a camera. As simple as it is to learn, it also can be complex, depending on how deep you want to delve into it.

You will receive access to view a video where the process will be demonstrated. There will be an introduction to different substrates you can use. Before the video, you will receive a supply list containing a list of essential equipment you need to get started. In the video, Kimberly will walk you through mixing the chemical, applying it to your choice of substrates, exposing, developing, and different types of toning and bleaching. You will have time to work on your images following along with the instructions. We will then meet up on Zoom as a group where you can ask follow up questions and view each others’ work. The following week, after making more images at home, the group will meet again to discuss the work and get questions answered.
After you sign up, you will receive the materials list, access codes for the video and the Zoom meeting. Video (25 minutes) access will begin on September 23, and you will be able to view it anytime before the Zoom meeting.
Kimberly will teach a companion workshop on making books. She will demonstrate four different book forms. If you decide to take this bookmaking class as a follow up to this Cyanotype workshop, you will receive instructions for the best kind of paper and sizes you should make some of your images so that you can use them for the books we will make.
