Cyanotype is a photographic printing method that uses sunlight to create prints on a dark blue background. You can print anything by simply placing it on a prepared piece of fabric or paper and exposing it to sunlight. In this workshop you will learn the basics of the technique and get to experiment with different materials and objects to design your own unique print. The pieces can be completed by adding some metallic details.

About Tiraz: Widad Kawar Home for Arab Dress

Tiraz is an interactive museum for an elegant and extremely rare kind of social history; a history which is tactile and visual, woven into fabric, and related though the work of feminine hands. It has taken over fifty years of commitment and vision to build the Widad Kamel Kawar collection, as a home for one of the most significant archives of Arab costume heritage in the modern era. Tiraz is more than a space to remember. It is a place to restore and renew what could have become lost.
