Create images using cyanotype, a manual photographic printing process used to create print patterns. This process was used for almost 200 years to capture images using sunlight and a photosensitive solution that turns simple fabric into a printable surface so anyone can create original prints with definition and an intense shade of blue. In this class we’ll work with prepared sheets, pressed flowers and a variety of other organic materials to create botanical-based compositions. While our prints develop, we’ll explore creative exercises and capture different versions of our compositions using graphite, colored pencils or pastel while learning about the history of the art form.
This class is appropriate for ages 18+.
This class will take place indoors at Rochester Brainery located at 176 Anderson Ave. F109, Rochester, NY 14607.
Live subtitles will be available upon request during this class. If you prefer a sign language interpreter, please fill out our contact form. Please also let us know if you have any preferences (seating, vision access, etc).
