Learn the cyanotype process with Brenton Hamilton in our historic process laboratory.
You will learn about the chemistry, papers and toners and after treatments, exposure and the possibilities of the cyanotype.
We will work from negatives from your digital files – But also from botanicals and free hand drawing with photographic emulsions and brushes. This is a creative weekend to push materials to new possibilities. We have UV light boxes, emulsions, brushes, toners, salts and basic botanicals
No experience is necessary. Though one packet of Pictorico film and a sheet of paper are required to bring along. You will also want to bring botanicals and collage materials from home. We’ll provide a list for you.
Lunch is included, other meals are on your own. Lodging is available on campus, private room & bath. $75/night
