Winter Class: Cyanotypes: How to Make Handmade Photographs Using the Sun


Mar 06, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Moab Arts & Recreation Center, 111 E 100 N, Moab, UT 84532, USA


Explore the world of alternative process photography and learn how to make cyanotypes using the sun and your own photographs. Cyanotypes date back to the mid 1800s, first used to illustrate botany books and reproduce drawings and diagrams—the original blueprint! This workshop will cover how to prepare and print cyanotypes using digital negatives and/or objects such as leaves, flowers, or any small object with interesting negative space. No prior experience is necessary! All materials included.

Instructed by Samantha Metzner (artwork in above image).
