We will be learning the art of cameraless photography creating one of a kind cyanotypes from nature !
The cyanotype process was discovered by Sir John Herschel in 1842 using photo sensitized paper and UV light, but it was a family friend Anna Atkins that was the first to use them in a series of published books cataloging her magical prussian blue botanical imagery beginning in 1843.
We will learn the timeless process of botanical printing that Anna Atkins used ,and then expand on that to create completely modern artful cyanotypes exploring the additions of texture and color to the images in fun ways .

• All of the workshops are self paced so that you can create on your own schedule.
• All of the workshops have no time limits or expiration dates so that you can refer back to a certain technique or project whenever you like , for as long as you like .
•All of the workshops have classrooms with written content, photos, and step by step video instruction.
• All of the workshops are in the same location so that if you have multiple workshops from me you can easily access them all on one site :)

Please NOTE with love : 2020-21 has brought on many changes . I work incredibly hard to bring you fun, informative, workshops with detailed instruction, full content , filled with LOTS of projects and techniques that you have for as long as you like . I work hard in sharing knowledge completely, in hopes that you will have lot of fun , learn new techniques , inspire creativity, and come back and join me for future workshops. I have taught workshops for almost 20 years now and appreciate so much the wonderful family of awesome artists that participate in the workshops. In 2021 I have experienced a wave purchasers that download the supply and resource lists and then ask for a refund. This is really not ok. Please note before purchase of any online workshop that due to the intellectual property involved there are no refunds on online workshops. I have LOTS of free content and videos online to enjoy . Thank you so much for understanding.
