Come make seasonal notecards with winter woodland and holiday themes! Cyanotype, also call sun-printing, is an early photographic process that produces blue and white prints. It is usually done in bright sunlight, but can also produce beautiful prints on cloudy days, and can be done indoors with a specialized UV light. You’ll have a chance to try both sunlight and artificial light.
We will use a variety of objects, including evergreen branches, crystal dishes, lace, paper snowflakes, cookie cutters, strings of lights, ribbons, and candy canes to make winter landscapes and holiday notecards. During this 2-hour workshop you will be able to make 6 notecards.
