SOLD OUT: Cyanotype Toning Workshop (11 November 2023)

Explore the art of cyanotype toning, uncovering the effects achievable through organic tannins like tea, coffee, rosemary, and wine. 

Toning, a transformative process, allows cyanotypes to transcend their characteristic blue hues. Through the application of organic tannins, such as tea, coffee, rosemary, and wine, these prints can adopt rich browns, sepia tones, subtle grays, and even hints of greens or purples. 

Date: Saturday, Nov 11 – 2023
Time: 9:00 – 12:00 (3 hours)
Place: The Deckle Edge @ 13 Brickfield Road, Salt River
Workshops space limited booking essential

All necessary materials will be provided for the workshop. Additionally, attendees are welcome to bring their own cyanotype prints if they wish to experiment further with toning effects.

What you will learn:

Participants will engage in hands-on experimentation with a provided assortment of pre-made cyanotypes, delving into the distinctive toning outcomes produced by various organic agents. By considering these varied results, attendees will cultivate an understanding of the artistic potential and practical intricacies intrinsic to the toning process. Moreover, this workshop provides a unique avenue to attain sepia and muted tones, all through the comparatively cost-effective cyanotype method as opposed to pricier alternative processes reliant on silver-based techniques.
