Make Prints With the Sun
The cyanotype process is a photographic process that dates back to 1842 by Sir John Frederick William Herschel. It was one of the first ways of producing photographs. This alternative printing process uses UV rays to make prints. Each piece is made by applying the cyanotype solution to the material, arranging the flowers, foliage or objects on the material and exposing it to the sun. After it is washed with water, the piece turns to a Persian blue.
About the workshop: Learn how to make cyanotypes and go home with your very own cyanotype bandana! This class is taught by local artist, Mary Margaret Johnson. Space is limited so registration is required. The registration fee includes general museum admission so you can enjoy the workshop and the museum during your visit!
