Join us for a Cyanotype Printing Workshop on World Photography Day!
Cyanotypes (also known as sun prints) are one of the earliest photographic processes. The image is developed by sunlight, making the printing process a favorite among amateur and professional photographers. Created in 1842, it was used by the very first female photographer Anna Atkins, most noted for using photography in her books on various plants.
It is in revival and contemporary photographers are embracing the blue hues.
Our instructor is an established artist who pushes the boundaries of the media by using items commonly found in any kitchen such as sea salt, baking soda and parsley. Her work has been exhibited widely stateside and abroad.
To join the workshop photography background is welcome, but not required.
Beginners are welcome.
