You don’t need to be an artist to make beautiful blue cyanotype prints! In this introductory class you’ll learn all the basics of this popular alternative photographic technique.

Using light sensitive chemicals you’ll expose prints in the sun and process them in water. By the end of class, you’ll have 4 gorgeous 8 x 10 cyanotype prints and the know-how to create more at home.

Lots of beautiful plants are budding and blooming during each season of the year. Let’s celebrate the natural world by making botanical blueprints together!

All Supplies are included and you are encouraged to bring your favorite assortment of plant materials or interesting objects to make prints that are uniquely yours! Pressed plants and flowers work quite well.

Please bring a sack lunch and a water bottle for a “working lunch” during the class.
