Cyanotypes is an alternative photographic process invented by John Herschel in 1842, paper coated with light sensitive solution changes to a rich indigo blue under ultra-violet light.
Objects placed on the paper leave behind a precise photographic image.
Sian focuses on this Cyanotype process in her professional work still exploring its potential through layering, text, photography, fabric and bookmaking.
You will experiment with a range of materials, including using acetates, and stencils to create a series of pieces. By the end of the session you will have several A6 and A5 Cyanotypes on watercolour paper to take home.
