Workshop: Cyanotypes on Paper and Fabric
March 11-12, 2023
10 am – 2 pm each day
Denver Botanic Gardens
This two-day workshop features the cyanotype process that dates back to architectural blueprints, the first illustrated books published, and the first photographs of botanical specimens. The medium is a mash-up of art and science and is still used today by artists to create editions and one-of-a-kind images that are beautifully blue. This class teaches the basics of cyanotype photograms on both paper and fabric. Cyanotype photograms are developed by placing objects directly onto photographic paper and exposing the composition to light. We will cover alternative and experimental exposure techniques and then add to the cyanotypes using watercolor, ink, embroidery thread and more to create mixed media final works.
This course is part of our Art Exploration Program and is open to everyone. The course fee includes some materials and general admission to the Gardens.
