CYANOTYPE 16MM FILMMAKING

The simple, DIY procedure yields brilliant blue imagery through the processes of making photograms and contact printing. Participants will learn to use this 19th-century photographic process in combination with 16mm film to create their own photograms or contact prints without traditional equipment. Participants are encourage to bring translucent fabrics, small objects, and 16mm negatives to be used in the creation of their own cyanotype film though all the necessary materials will be provided.
