Cyanotype or blueprint is a light sensitive photographic technique that works on paper or natural fabrics. It has been used since the 1800s and can help you create some exciting, individual fabric.

The videos will give you confidence to experiment and try out different ideas to make your own unique cyanotype prints. Your prints can then be used in textile art, quilts or be made into books etc.
