Learn two historic, permanent photo-printmaking techniques--cyanotype (blue-printing) and Van Dyke brown printing. If you have camera-generated images, we can make digital negatives from your photos or you can print flat objects and stencils directly (aka "photograms"). We will use tactile rag printmaking paper and natural fibers, like cotton and silk. No expensive equipment needed for you to continue after the workshop. No prior photo or printmaking experience necessary.
