with Samantha Metzner

Moab Arts & Recreation Center, 111 E 100 N, Moab, UT 84532, USA


The cyanotype process is a historic photographic process dating back to the mid 1800s. The process involves creating a photographic print with UV light, using objects, stencils, or negatives to create an image. This workshop will explore the history + methods of the process, including paper coating, exposure, and printing with studio time dedicated to participants creating their own cyanotypes.

This workshop is offered in tandem with the exhibition A Gathering, cyanotype portraits of Moab.
