This workshop will explore the history of cyanotypes (a camera-less photography process) as well as offer lots of time for hands-on exploration of this media. Pre-treated fabric will be used to create single and dual sided imagery, using a variety of materials for inspiration including leaves, flowers, stencils and more.
Feel free to bring your own inspirational items from home to use (lace doily, pressed flowers, or other FLAT or translucent materials)
This workshop is geared towards older teens, adults, and seniors.

Pinney Studio RESIDENCY OVERVIEW:
As an artist who works in bookmaking, box making, alternative photo processes, art journaling, and installation art (with a focus on storytelling through family stories!) Angela Johnson invites Madison adults and seniors to come explore new art mediums with her.
Angela sees the tools of creating as a way to process ideas, she plans to host weekly open studio sessions and workshops for the community throughout her time in residence. These opportunities will be focused on different media/processes each month with an emphasis on storytelling through thinking outside the box. Learn more about Angela on her website (external link).
