Cyanotype Workshop: The Magic of the Sunprint with Matel Rokke

With light-sensitive coatings onto paper, we will make beautiful blue toned prints when exposed with objects or transparencies blocking the ultraviolet light, leaving a silhouette image that “captures” the moment and the ghost of the object. This is a historic process ready for update.   Bring unusual small objects, natural foliage & grasses, nostalgic translucent or transparent memorabilia.   Also plan a photo image ahead of time that will be made into a transparency to use for exposures.

For all levels.   $60
