Cyanotype is a historic printing process that has regained popularity recently with artists and photographers alike. While some are dismayed at the continual decline of analogue materials by large photographic corporations, others are taking control and mixing chemistry and creating their own. Join us for a week aimed at exploring the exciting cross-over between printmaking and photography, and produce your very own creation to exhibit at the Orms Cape Town School of Photography.
