Printing with Light

with Miriam Otte

Our Cyanotype workshop offers a fun and family friendly way to enjoy art-making in the Mediterranean countryside. You’ll know you’ve arrived at the right place when the fragrant smell of orange blossoms welcomes you to the Miriam’s casita-studio. In a relaxed atmosphere, discover the easy steps behind these beautiful deep blue prints.

Cyanotype is a creative, simple and flexible photographic printmaking process that produces a characteristic blue image when sensitized paper is exposed to sunlight. Miriam Otte, your dada-days artist, will guide you in the process of gathering natural materials around her finca and choosing from her collection of shells, textures, and photo negatives.

Once you have your materials, you can experiment with composition, placing your objects together on paper and exposing their image to sunlight. Then it’s time to wash away the light sensitive emulsion, revealing your unique print.

In case you want to make prints using one of your own photos (cellphone pictures are fine!) you can email us one photo per student up to 24 hours before the workshop. 

Students will have plenty of time to get the hang of the technique, usually making between 5 – 8 prints each. At the end of class, you can take your prints home to show off the same day!
