Join this fun and immersive camera-less Cyanotype workshop to create eco-friendly botanical prints from plants and explore the history one of the earliest photographic processes.
Working with the sun or UV light source, learn how to create beautiful floral Prussian blueprints using the Cyanotype process.
Be inspired by the botanical prints created by English botanist and photographer Anna Atkins who pioneered the use of the Cyanotype process to capture images of algae, ferns, flowers, and other plants. By using the photogram method, she was considered the first female photographer and self-published the first book illustrated with photographic images
