RAW Labs' artist-in-residence Melanie King's graduate mentee Martha Gray leads a cyanotype printing class inspired by microscopic forms - the focus of Martha's own artistic practice.


The cyanotype method is an incredibly versatile, simple and fun process of printing images onto paper using light. Invented by Sir John Henry Herschel in 1841 this early photographic process produces distinctive and striking Prussian blue images which can also be toned in various other colours. Simple and economic, it remained in use well into the twentieth century as a means of reproducing architectural and engineering drawings as blueprints. Suitable for all levels.
