Cyanotype Silk Scarf Making coming up / by Kate Farrall

Digital Rebellion!
Give your Hipstamatic a break. Try making a cyanotype printed scarf and get a feel for what photography was like long before the digital age. I'm teaching this fun workshop on 11/23 so sign-up!

Cyanotype Silk Scarf
Sunday, November 23rd 11-1pm • $50   
You’ll create a silk scarf using the very same Cyanotype photographic process that Anna Atkins, famed first woman photographer, used in the 1840’s. The shadows and silhouettes from the objects placed on the scarf create white and light blue highlights that are surrounded by a deep “cyanotype” blue.

Like sun prints, this is a photogram technique which means it does not use negatives or an enlarger, just objects and a scarf coated with a light sensitive cyanotype mix.
 
Use it as a gift or keep it for yourself. It is a great way to create art that you can wear. Once you learn the technique, you can create designs using a wide variety of materials—a great way to make a custom gift for the holidays.

No prior photography knowledge needed, and all materials will be provided. You will go home with one completed cyanotype scarf.

Please note: This is a weather-permitting workshop. If it’s too rainy, you’ll get the process demonstrated and have the materials to make your own at home on a rain-free day.
