Workshop Overview

Create unusual pages with cyanotype images and rusted and tea-stained papers. On day one we will rust and stain paper and create cyanotypes; those lovely indigo images made from nature or from negatives on films, while compiling notes on all the experiments. On day two we will finish up our cyanotypes and create simple books from our experiments and notes. The books created will serve as technique sample books.
