Cyanotype Workskop with Oriana Poindexter

May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Register Today!

Join photographer and marine scientist Oriana Poindexter for an interactive cyanotype workshop at the Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden. Learn about this early alternative photographic process and use organic materials, such as giant kelp and Catalina native plants, to create your own cyanotype prints using photo chemistry techniques first developed in the 1840s.

Cyanotype is an alternative photographic process used to create photographic prints in the distinctive shade of Prussian blue and white without the use of a camera, exposed with the sun and developed in water.  This workshop will teach you the fundamentals of the cyanotype process, its history, and will culminate with each participant creating at least three original cyanotype prints.

The first portion of the workshop will involve an introduction, demonstration and selection of materials. The second portion will be a printing session. If you have materials you’d like to bring to use for printing (sentimental objects, dried botanicals, etc), please feel free to bring them.

Registration fee includes all materials and instruction as well as light refreshments and seaweed snacks.
