Learn the basics of Cyanotype printmaking in this FREE drop in workshop
The cyanotype, or “blue-printing,” is an iron-based photo printing process that responds to UV light. By applying cyanotype chemistry onto paper and using opaque materials to block the paper, the exposed chemistry reacts to the UV rays to turn blue while the “blocked” shape remains white. Participants will create cyanotype prints on paper using found materials and expose the images using the sun’s UV rays.
This event is open to the public on a drop in basis at any time between 1:30 and 4 PM. This activity is estimated to take 20 – 30 minutes to complete, but participants are welcome to stay as long as they like or come and go as they please. RSVP is encouraged but not required.
