Join me in learning about the history and science behind this process of Cyanotype, and have fun experimenting with it yourself. For this introductory workshop, we will be working on cotton fabric on Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 12:30 – 4:30 pm. The cost is $65 / $50 for museum members.
What is cyanotype?
Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints.
All necessary materials will be provided, but you should bring:
lunch / snacks / something to drink
small items that are special to you that you might like to work with, botanical materials (I will provide some botanical materials but please also bring your own; we will be making photograms)
your creativity : )
I suggest wearing old clothing (no need to dress up!)
You will also learn about World Cyanotype Day, and be ready to participate after this session!
This workshop is appropriate for all ages, so bring the kids!
The event is weather permitting, because to make cyanotypes you need the sun.
