Workshop: Cyanotype workshop – at The Photoscope

5. June 2021 @ 10:00 - 16:00

This workshop is based on the classic blue photogram technique from 1842, which you will learn to master.
At the same time, we want to challenge the old photographic technique so that an artistic and experimental workspace is created, where material, technique and motif can freely work in harmony. We will focus on the effect and influence of materials, the transparency and shape of the motifs, graphic expressions in light and shadow, exposure possibilities, as well as the flow and effect of CYANOTYPE chemistry’s interaction with water, light and toning baths.
You will learn the basic principles of CYANOTYPE through an introduction to the chemistry and tools of the process so that you can produce CYANOTYPE solutions, coat paper, assess motif choices, expose, develop, wash and tone your own CYANOTYPES.
The workshop is part of the Copenhagen Photo Festival and is an important part of our exhibition Framed Nature, which is a satellite exhibition during the Photo Festival. This means that the main topic of the workshop will be Framed Nature and your finished experiments will be part of the Photo Festival.
For you as a participant, this means that you must be willing to work under the topic Framed Nature and that one or two of your finished cyanotypes will be exhibited on our studio. We will have a vernissage on June 10, where we will hold a joint vernissage for the entire exhibition Framed Nature.
The workshop does not requires any prior knowledge, just an open mind and the desire to learn and experiment.
There will be materials included in the price and the possibility of purchase if you want to make more.
Practical details:
We have a selection of motifs, such as dried flowers and plants, but please bring your own motifs (e.g. flat two-dimensional objects. We will not work with negatives). We work mainly in a small format of approx. 8x10cm, but with the options to work with larger sizes, as possible.
Wear work clothes and shoes that can withstand blue stains, and bring lunch. We have coffee, tea, water and a snack. Also bring a folder to take home your finished cyanotypes.
