Let’s get ready to celebrate World Cyanotype Day on September 28 by learning to make cyanotype prints in a workshop on Saturday & Sunday, August 24-25. It’ll be a great two days of fun with the sun, so register today!
Cyanotype is a vintage monochrome photographic printing process discovered in 1842. Join visual artist Candace Law in the studio to learn more and create prints with this easy-to-use technique. We’ll create beautiful cyan-blue photograms from everyday objects, print on paper from your favorite photos, and print on fabric to show as flags. You’ll also learn how to tone prints to a lovely brown-sepia color.
The featured project will be to print at least one 12″ x 12″ cotton flag. Our flags will be sent to the A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, TX where they will be strung together with others from around the world to symbolize unity and beauty. The installation will be on display there until October 21. It will then travel to the Healing Arts Center in New Orleans for an exhibition beginning in December at PhotoNola until the end of Mardi Gras 2020. The theme for the flags is Land-Sea-Sky.
The equipment, supplies, and most materials for prints on paper as well as two cotton flags are provided. All you need are your own images.
