Description

The cyanotype, or “blue-printing,” is an iron-based photo printing process that responds to UV light. Participants will create cyanotype prints on paper and fabric bases using the sun as our exposure unit. These sessions will include live demonstrations, Q&A sessions, and the opportunity to discuss each other’s work at the end of the session. Each online instructional will be introduced with a reading on Anna Atkins (16 March 1799 – 9 June 1871), British botanist and first credited female photographer, who bound a cyanotype-filled log of British seaweeds in 1843. We will use Atkins and her delicate recordings of nature as the impetus for projects.

Please note, this is a 6 part class, taking place on 6 different days via Zoom.
