Cyanotype Creations

Cyanotyping was discovered in 1842 and is still in use today by some artists. Now, using special pre-prepared Cyanotype paper, your child can have a go creating a fabulous sun-light print to take away and put on their wall at home. Simple objects, like feathers, leaves or geometric shapes arranged on the sheet and exposed to UVA light, create stunning monochrome masterpieces every time.

• Children are given a treated light sensitive sheet placed on a wood board.
• Objects are placed on the sheet (e.g., leaves and cut cardboard shapes).
• The composition is covered with a transparent sheet and sealed.
• The board is placed under direct UVA light for around 5-10 minutes, rinsed and left to dry. The artwork is ready to enjoy.

Learning Outcomes
• The technique of cyanotyping.
