Cyanotypes on Fabric

With Sarah Fuller

August 24 - 28, 2024

This alternative photography workshop focuses on the historical Cyanotype photo process, using objects and plants from the Hollyhock ecosystem to create one-of-a-kind images on fabric.

Participants will learn how to create Cyanotype prints on fabric and will be encouraged to use natural elements from the Hollyhock ecosystem to create photograms. A photogram is a photographic technique that uses objects as ‘negatives’, and that allows the print to be created in situ with available materials. Cyanotype prints will then be toned with dye plants from the Hollyhock garden.

Both processes invite engagement with the ecosystem of Cortes Island and embrace serendipity and collaboration with natural materials.

Program Highlights

  • Knowledge of the history of the Cyanotype processes in the context of the broader history of photography
  • Understanding of material qualities of different natural fabrics, plant dyes, and the water used for development
  • Hands-on experience of the Cyanotype processes
  • Hands-on experience of the Cyanotype toning process
  • Introduction to methodology for experimentation and note-taking for further exploration

We’ll be going over all the techniques from start to finish so this workshop is suitable for beginners to photography, as well as those with little to no experience in the Cyanotype processes.

Daily Schedule

A detailed schedule will be available at least 2 weeks in advance of the program. View sample schedule here.
