The Art of Cyanotype – Advanced

April 21 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

Artist & instructor Fruma Markowitz returns to lead this Advanced Art of Cyanotype workshop 
  • The perfect opportunity to learn more advanced processes, further experiment and develop your skills.  Create prints on paper using the cyanotype historical photographic process. 
  • Practice the “Wet” Cyanotype process: using materials commonly found in one’s kitchen – sea salt, turmeric powder, and dish soap to achieve new textures and surprising colors. 
  • Learn bleaching and toning techniques: using washing soda, black tea and instant coffee to achieve different colors with pre-made cyanotype prints. 
  • Use botanical specimens and common objects to produce one-of-a-kind compositions involving both random and intentional mark-marking. The results are surprising, ethereal and delightful!
Advanced workshop: Members $80 / Non-members $95 
Basics & Advanced workshop: Members $140 / Non-members $170

Workshops are limited to ten participants and includes all materials.
There will be a basic Art of Cyanotype workshop on Saturday April 20th, followed by this advanced workshop; sign up for one day or both.

Fruma is a member of several artist organizations in CT, including Silvermine Guild of Artists, the Artists Collective of Westport, The Kerschner Gallery, The Bendheim Gallery, Carriage Barn Art Center, Ridgefield Guild of Artists, Shoreline Arts Alliance and Rowayton Arts Center.
