Photo Summer Session 7
August 22-28, 2021
May Babcock & Lindsey Beal
Foraged Photographs: Cyanotypes & Handmade Paper
This workshop will integrate hand papermaking and cyanotype printing. We’ll make paper from sustainably harvested plants and traditional fibers and create sheets using deckle boxes and multiple pulps. Using cyanotype and anthotype, we’ll create photograms from foraged plants and photographs from digital negatives. Cyanotype creates blue images that can be toned to other colors. Anthotypes are made with photosensitive plant emulsions. Working in both the photo and papermaking studios, students will build a supply of handmade papers, print unique images, and learn to create environmentally conscious artwork at home. All levels.
