Print Yourself! | Instant Cyanotypes

In this workshop, you’ll explore a historic photographic and printing process, creating a unique cyan-toned print on light-sensitive paper. You’ll come away with a memorable and abstract self-portrait.

What's Covered

We’re celebrating the art of printmaking with a pop-up Instant Cyanotype workshop ⁣at ‘The Print Show’. Your instructor will walk you through how cyanotype prints work, and how that foundational element of light sensitivity translates to modern photography. You’ll then use a combination of provided materials and your own belongings to make your own impressions on photosensitive paper while expressing an element of your identity.

Alongside the exhibition, take part in a printmaking workshop, attend a talk with tips on building an art collection at an accessible price point, or join us for the opening night to meet artists, curators and enthusiasts alike!⁣ Follow @theprintshowdubai for full exhibition details.
