In this workshop we will use sunshine to make images on paper and fabric. Artist Caitlin Parker will guide you through the process of making cyanotype photograms, one of the oldest forms of photography that doesn't use a camera. Participants will learn how to prepare paper and fabric with light sensitive chemicals, compose images using a variety of objects and materials including fresh botanicals, and develop the prints in the summer sunshine! You will create a piece on paper and a fabric bandana. Once you know this process, it allows for infinite possibilities! All materials will be provided.
NOTE: The process depends on sunshine. While it works on an overcast day, a truly rainy day would necessitate rescheduling the class.
Supplies: All supplies will be provided. Students are welcome to bring their own pressed or fresh plant specimens, or any other interesting objects to print with.
