Event Type

Did you know cyanotype was invented by an astronomer trying to find a way to copy his notes? It is a photographic printing process which produces a cyan-blue print and was used by engineers to make blueprints throughout the 20th century. Learn how to make cyanotype prints, maximize the modern cyanotype process, and move beyond basic blue in this workshop with Mo Lashbrook of @behindthesmileart.
Participates will create beautiful cyanotype art prints with deeper blues, longer tonal range, and more vivid colors. Learn to mix cyanotype chemicals, prepare surfaces, expose, develop, tone, and embellish prints. This workshop will show you how to use this historical process in a very versatile and creative way to make unique hand-made art. Participates will take home every print they create! Ages 12+, please. No refunds.
Cyanotypes require UV light in order to create images. A successful class needs a sunny day. A rain date of May 30 has been scheduled. Please be sure you are able to attend rain date in case we need to postpone class due to weather.

Materials fee covers:
A variety of paper and fabric to experiment on.
Cyanotype chemicals and toning supplies to experiment with.
Photo negatives and miscellaneous objects for creating prints.
Painting supplies for embellishing prints.

Students should bring:
The cyanotype process is rather messy so wear old clothing and bring rubber gloves.
Objects with an interesting shape and/or fabric for creating prints (optional).
