Cyanotypes – Alternative Photographic Process

An interest in alternative photography developed whilst on my Masters. I have been working with Cyanotype process for over five years and find the process fascinating each blue print image is unique. I find that each time I am working in the studio, you never know what will happen. It is always so exciting to see the final print emerge.  

What is Cyanotype – Sunprinting

Cyanotype is an alternative photographic printing process that produces a Prussian blueprint. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints.

The process dates to the mid-19th century and was famously used by Anna Atkins who created a book on photographs of British algæ.

The courses I run guide you through each step of how to produce these unique prints, at the end of the session you will leave with unique beautiful prints. I work at Kew Art Studio, and in addition a The Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington, and at Kingston Museum.

Currently due to government guidelines I am not able to run face to face courses.   If you are interested in 1-1 Online courses or for more information about future workshops please contact me directly through my email – louiseandersonart@gmail.com
