Workshop Information

Course Outline

~ Cyanotype Blueprinting on Paper & Fabric ~

Originating in the 1840s ~ Cyanotype is a photographic printmaking process widely known as the term “blueprint” which was mostly used for large architectural & mechanical drawing reproduction.

Blueprints are created using equal ratios of Potassium ferricyanide and Ferric ammonium citrate(green) and a photographic negative or film positive placed onto a UV (ultra violet) light-sensitive sheet of paper. Areas where light does not hit sensitized material remains white.

Students will learn how to make double exposures, experiment with both paper and fabric and will walk away with a collection of unique handmade postcards.


This workshop will be led by Stephanie June Ellis. Stephanie is a travelling professional artist, author and founder of The Art Of Process School.

Through her workshops and retreats she engages with global communities offering wellbeing through the creative process with a focus on Sacred Geometry.

Primarily working with pen and ink on paper, her creative practice centres around geometric & biomorphic movements which aim to transcend viewers beyond the physical world and encourage a wider vision of awareness through universal patterns.
