About the event

In this 2-day workshop on April 20th and 21st students will investigate and create cyanotype prints using contact printing and photograms. Cyanotype prints are painterly “blueprints” that allow layering of light and shadow. The possibilities of image-making can come from letterpress printed mylar film and layering cyanotype over letterpress printing. We will make films and sheets on day one, and add techniques on day two. The workshop will last from 1–5pm approximately each day. 


*When purchasing the event for April 20th, studnets will automatically be enrolled in both dates, on April 20th and 21st from 1–5pm

The workshop is located at Paradise Press and Print Studio at 1854 NE 2nd Street, Unit B, Gainesville FL 32609
