Dates: Saturday-Sunday, July 31-August 1
In this course, the science and mystery of the cyanotype will be revealed through discussion and practice. Cyanotype is the 178-year-old process of photographic blueprinting. We will create our own cyanotypes on paper and fabric using found objects and drawing. The interaction of the sun, the water, and Ox-Bow’s environment will coalesce to make our photographic work.
