Cyanotype Printing & Pamphlet Books with Katama Murray

July 24 @ 1:00 pm 4:00 pm

Experiment with natural patterns and mindful making through a hands-on workshop focusing on cyanotypes! This class will focus on the basics of cyanotype printing techniques with fabric and paper to create a series of prints, fabric patches and a hand-bound book. Dive into the realm of this photographic printmaking process and book art method in this hands-on class as a way to connect to the season and objects around us.

This workshop offers an amalgamation of outdoor foraging, printmaking, photography, bookmaking and fiber processes, thereby offering infinite possibilities for creativity within each mode of making. Participants will capture shadows through cyanotype printing, utilizing seasonally foraged plants of the region as well as everyday objects that hold memory or visual intrigue to print with on coated cotton fabric and watercolor paper. Prints will be created using either the power of the sun or an indoor UV light, depending on the weather. No experience with any techniques are necessary to join!
