Introduction to Cyanotype Printing Workshop

Tuesday, October 30

11 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Alkek Library Room 105/106


An introduction to the art of cyanotype printing.  Participants will briefly learn about the history of this 19th century photographic process and have the opportunity to design their own compositions on pre-treated paper using a variety of found objects, plants and other media. As cyanotype chemistry must be exposed to UV light to create a successful print, part of this workshop will take place outdoors.
