Class Description

Learn how to create your own photographic paper using historical photographic process such as
Cyanotype and Van Dyke (Brown prints). The class is designed so that beginners and more experienced photographers
and artists can enjoy and come away with the knowledge to create unique images whether photographs or photograms.
This is what is called contact printing – the image will be the same size as the negative so large negatives will be available for the participants.
