Cyanotype Kit

Cyanotype, also known as sun printing, uses natural UV light to burn an image into chemically treated paper. It has historically been used as a simple, inexpensive way to create copies of architectural drawings, also known as blueprints. The two chemicals used to treat the paper are ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide.

Join Steph Harrison in this 20 minute workshop as she takes you through the process of cyanotype printmaking in 3 easy steps. The course is priced at £15, with the option to purchase Seacourt’s materials box, which includes everything you will need to create 10 or more cyanotype prints. the box is priced at £28 and includes: 

  • 10 sheets of Fabriano paper.
  • Chemical A-ferric ammonium citrate 
  • Chemical B-Potassium Ferricyanide
  • An opaque, sun-proof bottle
  • measuring cup x2
  • mixing spatula x2
  • Welcome Message
  • An opaque bag to store your coated paper.

You will also receive a complimentary digital print of Seacourt Member, Helen Roberts’ limited edition  “Seed Time” cyanotype print with every box. We hope you enjoy this online workshop and materials box, launched in celebration of Seacourt’s 40th anniversary. As each box sleeve is hand pressed, each box design will be unique.
