Botanicals in Blue: Cyanotype Workshop
Registration for this workshop is closed.
In this workshop you will learn to create botanical cyanotype prints. You will learn how artists made the first photographs of plants and flowers using this camera-less technique. Enjoy experimenting to make unique compositions using local flora from the Garden or bring your own plant specimens. You will make several prints using this process in natural daylight, learning how to fix your images on a range of different papers.
