Cyanotype Workshop with Jessie Swimeley

June 29, 2023 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Explore Cyanotype printmaking with Jessie Swimeley at Idaho Botanical Gardens!
Cyanotype is a historical photographic print-making process, characterized by its rich monochromatic blues.
It uses the power of the sun to make wonderful contact prints. In the late 1800s, this process was used to create botanical prints for documentation.
Cyanotype has since become a way to endlessly express yourself. In this workshop, local artist Jessie Swimeley will guide the group through the step-by-step process of making prints and starting their own cyanotype practice:
1. A brief history of the cyanotype process
2. The chemistry behind the process
3. How to prepare paper, expose, and develop prints
*This class will be at the IBG outdoor classroom and includes free Garden admission
$35 IBC members
$40 non-members
