Botanical Blues: Cyanotype
Harness sunlight to create dreamlike botanical images in rich blues. William Waitzman, whose artwork appears in The New Yorker and The New York Times, will guide you through the hands-on process of making cyanotype photograms, one of the oldest forms of photography and one that doesn't use a camera. Learn the best ways to prep your paper with light-sensitive chemicals, compose your image using pressed plants, and develop your print in the sunshine. Complete 4-6 unique pieces of art. Please bring lunch.
