The Multi-faceted Artist: Panel Discussion
Cyanotype Workshop: Shadow Ocean

Cyanotype Workshop: Shadow Ocean

Saturday, Jun 8, 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Led by Bubbler Artist-in Residence: Lydia & Riley

Let’s explore how traces of light, translucent seaweed, the color blue, and Anna Atkins changed history. Collectively, we will view examples and discuss the history of camera-less photograms. Then, each participant will prepare a composition (using drawing, writing, found materials) to create a cyanotype. Bring in your own objects, small and available plant specimens, written texts, rummage around your backpack or use the items on hand in the Bubbler.
No experience needed; all ages

*Rain Date: Saturday, June 15th, 1-3 p.m.
