The Art of Cyanotype Workshop – Basics

April 20 @ 10:15 am - 1:30 pm

Artist & instructor Fruma Markowitz returns for Spring Into to Cyanotype workshop
  • Learn the process, experiment and develop your skills. Create prints on paper using the cyanotype historical photographic process. 
  • Learn how the non-toxic cyanotype chemicals (potassium ferricyanide and ferric ammonium citrate) react in exposure to sun/UV light to produce permanent, magical blue and white images. 
  • 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! 
  • Create a 12” X 12” cloth cyanotype flag with any type of design which they can take home to display.
Members: $80 / Non-members $95  (limited to 10 participants, includes all materials)
