Capture the Sun: Cyanotype Printmaking Workshop

Anna Atkins Cyanotype

About Capture the Sun: Cyanotype Printmaking Workshop

Come make unique sun prints on the beautiful grounds of deCordova. Using natural materials and seasonal botanicals, we’ll capture the autumn sunshine in beautiful blue prints.

A brief history of the cyanotype and the blueprint process will lead into a session of printing on paper and fabric using hand made natural materials, negatives and stencils. deCordova is pleased to offer this workshop that explores the intersection of art and nature.
