About the workshop
During this workshop we will play with the cyanotype, a very simple photographic printing technique full of possibilities and variations. Specifically, we will explore how to obtain different tones by altering timing, drawing, and exposure methods. Virginia will show us how she usually builds her studio to create large long exposure cyanotypes with a live printing session, from chemical preparation to the final result.
