Amy Wappler, Allium Sativum: Scape, 2021. Made in the Advanced Cyanotype Experimentation with instructor Brenton Hamilton.

Join us for this intensive one-day exploration of cyanotype and all of its forms. We’ll outline, describe, and demonstrate the three forms: Classic, Ware, and diluted forms. You will experience a lecture on the cyanotype as a technique, learn about the chemistry, mixing, cyan on fabric and glass, a paper guide, acidification techniques, and troubleshooting. A thorough grounding in all the “in’s and out’s” of the cyanotype. This is a great workshop for teachers. Demonstrations and troubleshooting for the printer + how to set up your darkroom and ample time for dynamic Q&A.

NOTE: Students who wish to practice these techniques at home during and after the virtual instruction should expect to make an additional purchase of Lab Materials (list provided by Brenton) for $100.

Students taking this class should also consider signing up for Brenton’s follow-up workshop, 1-Day Advanced Cyanotype: Toning, Recipes and Methods.
