 Cyanotypes are one-of-a-kind prints created using a sun sensitive process that’s remained virtually unchanged since its invention in 1842. Water is used as the developer. In this 2-day workshop you’ll learn techniques for making beautiful blue (cyan) abstract and figurative images on textiles as well as the most secure methods to incorporate them into your encaustic work. I’ll demo the use of plants, lace, cut paper and glass as well as shibori techniques and drawings/mark making. If you’ve been looking for a way to include or expand imagery in your 2D and 3D encaustic work, this is it! On Day 1 we’ll make lots of prints and learn how to work with them. On Day 2 you are encouraged to create a finished piece.

The materials fee covers 2 contact printing frames (yours to take home) and a light-blocking envelope packed with sensitized silk, cotton and linen fabrics in a range of colors and opacities. You’ll complete this workshop with enough knowledge and materials to continue making prints in your own studio.
