Art Workshop - Tangled Up in Blue: Cyanotypes in Nature

7/31/2021 - 8/1/2021
Venue: Ox-Bow Campus
3435 Rupprecht Way Saugatuck, MI 49453

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.
