Welcome to our Online Course offers:
CYANOTYPE & ALBUMEN PRINTING
with Jill Enfield
Learn to create beautiful cyanotype and albumen prints of your work. The Cyanotype process will give you unique shades of cyan-blue prints. Albumen varies a great deal depending upon the treatment given during processing, but most often it is a brown coloured print. It can resemble a platinum/palladium print, but is less expensive in the making.
Both processes stem from the 1840’s to 1850’s, and both processes consist of creating a light sensitive emulsion that is brushed onto paper, fabric, glass or wood, and exposed in sunlight or with UV light. You will also learn to tone the prints using non-toxic chemicals.
The class will meet once a week, on Monday, over a six week period, beginning February 15TH and ending on March 22TH.
Time: 19:00 - 21:00 (CET) / 1pm to 3PM (EST)
Day: Monday (Feb. 15, Feb. 22, Mar. 1, Mar. 8, Mar. 15, Mar. 22)
Place: Zoom - invitation will be sent to your e-mail
Levels: All levels
Max participants: 8
Each participant is expected to conduct the process from their own workplace, with Jill guiding you step by step along the way, from her studio. In our first meeting Jill will give you suggestions for how to organise your workspace.
You will be given assignments in between classes, that are meant to help you practice the different steps in the process.
You will need to supply your own equipment and chemistry to join this workshop. In short you will need UV-lamps, contact print frame (or 2 pieces of glass and clips to hold them together), water color paper, negatives in the size you want your print, trays, a dim room with 40 watt bulbs or less, and running water. Plus brushes, tape, gloves, apron, eyedroppers, and chemistry. A detailed list will be sent to you upon registration with suggestion of suppliers.
Jill is considered one of Americas leading authority in Alternative Photographic Processes, and has written 3 books on the subject.
