About This Class

In Cyanotype 101 you will learn how to make a sunprint, otherwise known as a cyanotype. Cyanotype is unique in that it is a form of photography that does not require a camera! The sunprinting process needs very few supplies to create a stunning final work of art with its signature blue color. Sunprinting is also a family-friendly art project and a great summer activity.
