Art Workshop | Botanical Cyanotype

Friday, December 9, 1pm-3:30pm

https://arboretum.harvard.edu/events/event-signup/?id=60785

Learn how to make beautiful seasonal cards and prints using the alternative photography method known as Cyanotype. Participants will collect leaves and seeds in the landscape and arrange them on special paper to create a deep blue print with bright, ghost-white silhouettes. This historic photography method, otherwise known as blueprints (sunprints), is one of the earliest forms of photography, and offers participants the ability to perform something that seems like magic.

Led by Tonya Lemos of Blazing Star Herbal School.

This workshop will take place primarily in the wheelchair accessible Hunnewell Lecture Hall, plus an optional, self-guided exploration of the landscape to collect plant material.

Registration is required for this event.
