Join us Sunday, April 19 for our Cyanotype Workshop

cyanotype apples

When: Sunday, April 19, from 11:00am – 3:00pm

Cost: MEMBERS: $80; NON-MEMBERS: $100.

This workshop taught by Hadley K Conner is an investigation into the expressive possibilities of the cyanotype process and will cover and demonstrate the techniques and procedures for making these aptly-named blue-toned prints.

Students will learn the cyanotype process from start to finish, starting with the mixing of its iron-based, light sensitive emulsion, coating the paper with the emulsion and finally, placing a negative or other objects on the coated paper and exposing it to a UV light source. Different chemistry formulas, emulsions, coating methods and paper choices will be discussed and can be experimented with.

Students should bring large format negatives, acetate negatives, or objects for contact printing. Any paper that students wish to experiment with (in addition to paper provided by the Print Room) should be brought in. Students may also email images to the Print Room, in advance of the class, for digital negatives.

Class cost is $80 for members and $100 for non-members. Most materials are provided in with class cost, while extra paper and transparencies are additional and can be paid for at class time.

Hadley K Conner holds a BFA from Cleveland Institute of Art and a MAAE from the Art Academy of Cincinnati. She teaches photography at the high school and college levels, and continues to shoot film in a digital world.
