CYANOTYPE AND CYANOTYPE TONING WORKSHOP
Instructor: Sarah Fuller
Location: Starigrad Paklenica, Paklenica National park
- September 24th 2 – 5 PM (Cyanotype)
Come explore the historical Cyanotype photo process through the lens of local flora and
textures! The focus of this workshop will be to collaborate on creating fabric camouflage
inspired by the Paklenica ecosystem. The collaborative camouflage created during the
workshop will be used in a site-specific vertical dance performance in the Big Canyon in Paklenica
National Park. Cyanotype is a traditional photo process that uses an iron-based photo chemistry and
UV light from the sun to create beautiful blue toned prints. The prints can also be toned to
different shades of yellow, brown and deep purple using natural materials like tea, coffee, local
herbs and plants.
In this two-day workshop, we will cover:
- How to coat fabric with Cyanotype chemistry
- How to expose prints in the sun using local materials such as rocks, leaves and bark as ‘negatives’
- How to tone the final prints with teas, coffee, and herbs.
