Join Madelyn Gowler for a free Cyanotype workshop outside!

CyAnOtYpE wOrKsHoP!!!

WiTh MaDeLyN gOwLeR

Saturday, June 4, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Meet at the School of Art Gallery (workshop will take place in the Taché darkrooms and outside)

During this 4 hour workshop participants will learn how to make Cyanotype prints outside under the sun! After a picnic lunch break, we will head indoors and tone our Cyanotype prints with a variety of natural ingredients in the darkrooms. Participants will be able to experiment with different printing surfaces, as well as toning colours, and leave with a stack of beautiful prints!

Participants should bring a lunch, which we will eat outside. We will have light snacks and tea/coffee. Please dress to be inside and outside for the workshop.

For the Cyanotype printing, we ask participants to bring translucent or interesting shaped objects of their choosing. These could be nets, tulle, negatives or transparencies, cookie cutters, leaves, glass knickknacks, crystals, fabric…endless possibilities! These objects will be exposed with sun light onto paper, fabric, or wood (which we will supply).

Tip: Objects that can be flattened to the printing surface, like fabric, will produce a more detailed print.
