Jacquard Products is proud to announce that our Cyanotype Fabrics were awarded the 2016 Creative Child Product of the Year Award!
Cyanotype is a photographic printmaking process that is so simple, even a novice can get professional results. Printing with Cyanotype is a fantastic way to introduce children to the magic of science, photography and art. The panel of educators, mothers and professionals at Creative Child Magazine wholeheartedly agree!
Cyanotype Fabric is a wonderful and engaging project for a group (birthday parties, camps, schools, etc.), and it is portable enough to take on hikes or the beach. Offered in 8.5” x 11” sheets or a 5’ x 7’ mural size, Cyanotype Fabric can be used by an individual or many kids working together. Children can make prints of their favorite toys, capture full-body forms or explore beautiful shapes found in nature: leaves, shells, stones, branches, leaves, flowers, etc. The Cyanotype printmaking process is not only super fun, but it is also an excellent educational opportunity: it teaches creativity, resourcefulness and patience, and ties in extremely well with lesson on science, history, art, technology, and the power of the sun.
