Saturday, March 26: Cyanotype Workshop with Laura Barth Turner

The cyanotype process, also known as the blueprint process, was first introduced by John Herschel in 1842 and has remained virtually unchanged since its invention. Cyanotypes were originally created for architects and engineers blue print designs, but now artists have adapted this technique and can now create beautiful pieces of artwork for everyone to enjoy. 
Great for beginners and all levels interested in gaining hands-on experience with traditional photographic techniques.

Our workshop will introduce students to the history of the cyanotype process. Students will learn how to make sensitizing solutions and coat various natural fibered fabrics and papers. Photograms will be created with botanical specimens, feathers, lace, and other objects (no film, camera, or negatives needed). Students interested in experimenting with negatives should contact Dabble before class. A large portion of the class will take place outside, as sunlight will be used to expose the cyanotypes.

This workshop is adaptable for participants of all ages and levels of experience. There will be lots of one-on-one coaching. Sign up here.
