Botanical Sunprints (Intro to Cyanotype)
Date: Saturday, February 20 (rain date February 27).
Students will learn to expose and develop cyanotype prints, creating their own botanical-themed works of art on paper and fabric using materials from nature and the power of the sun. We’ll show some examples of what’s possible with the cyanotype (sunprinting) process, and an introduction to the chemicals and equipment needed. Students will create images on paper and fabric and walk away with a resource list and knowledge for how to set up for and make cyanotypes on their own. Please note— since this project requires strong UV light, we have a “rain date” of February 27.
Format: Pretaped introduction (est. 20 min) + 90 minute live Zoom + mailed art kit. The instructor will also have virtual “office hours” for troubleshooting or questions.
