Cyanotype Workshop

Cyanotype Workshop



Introduction to making digital negatives and Cyanotype Prints.


A favorite since its invention was announced in 1842 by Sir John Herschel, these brilliant blue images are made from a mixture of potassium ferricyanide with either ferric ammonium oxolate or ferric ammonium citrate. The resulting emulsion is only sensitive to a narrow width of ultraviolet light and in this workshop you will learn how to create digital negatives that produce a beautiful tonal range of cyan blue. 


The process is also used by artists who don't have access to a fully functional darkroom as the prints can be exposed by sunlight and are processed with water. Perfect for photograms as well. 


ferric ammonium citrate or ferric ammonium oxalate, and potassium ferricyanide, and only water to develop and fix. Announced in 1842, it is still in use.
