Look for the Opus Art Supplies tents and come try your hand at cyanotype printing: Get hands-on with cyanotype and create a photographic print harnessing the power of the sun with the team from Opus! This antique photographic printing process was developed in the mid 1800’s and is distinctive for its rich blue colour. Come and make a cool blue print of your own to take home and enjoy. This technique is easy for artists of all ages and abilities and is available with General Entry to the Create! Arts Festival (no special registration required)
