Anyone walking off the street can do the workshop.

The cyanotype process is a simple, inexpensive, and endlessly versatile process that can be used on a number of surfaces, including paper and fabric as well as glass and wood. The initial natural color is a beautiful deep blue; but through toning, the color can range to grays, browns and black. It can be used in combination with a wide range of other media, making it a useful tool for photographers, printmakers, painters, fabric artists, and even ceramicists and sculptors. Yet it is simple enough that non-artists – even older children – can use it to make simple images.

In this workshop for beginners, participants will learn the simple mixing of the chemical emulsion, explore various ways of making both photographic and non-photographic negatives, and enjoy the process of exposing and developing their own images.

Adam will have his printer laptop and a laser printer so they can make paper negatives. If you wish to bring large negatives or objects for photograms, that is optional. If you have a phone you can make images then email or AirDrop if you have that ability to Adam and the image will be converted to a negative. If you are a seasoned artist who works on paper, and you want to experiment with your own paper you can. 

This workshop is $50 per person.

Max. 6 ppl
