October 6 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EDT
Join visiting artist Margo Duvall for a hands-on workshop making cyanotypes! The cyanotype is a type of camera-less photography that was invented by an astronomer trying to find a way to copy his notes, and was one of the earliest photographic printing processes. Cyanotypes use the power of the sun (or a UV light) to make a cyan-blue prints without a darkroom. Participants will experiment by making photograms with found objects – a process that can be easily done with minimal experience and limited materials.
Space is limited to 15 participants. Advance registration is required. To sign up for this workshop, email Kelsey Malone, Curator of the Doris Ulmann Galleries (email@example.com), by Wednesday, October 4, to reserve your spot! This workshop is open to students, faculty, and staff of Berea College. There may be additional space for Berea community members; please reach out to Kelsey Malone to inquire.
All materials will be provided at no cost to participants, but participants are encouraged to bring small items of their own to incorporate into their images. Some objects you might want to bring with you might include:
- Interesting flowers or plants
- Translucent objects like lace, glasses, tissue paper, fabric scraps
- Other small objects that might make fun shadows.
- Photographic slides or negatives
Note: This workshop will be a ton of fun and a little bit messy – in a good way! Wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy, or bring an apron and/or gloves.
