Introduction to Cyanotype & Calligraphy Workshop
Make a classic blue and white botanical print in this two hour introduction to cyanotype and calligraphy workshop led by local artist Nika, of Calligraphette & Co. You'll make 4x6 cyanotype prints using an array of dried flowers & leaves on your pre-treated paper. Exposing the paper to sunlight will create a white imprint from your floral elements, while the rest of your sheet will turn to a lovely cyan blue. During the middle hour of the class, we'll dive into the foundations of modern calligraphy. Using basic principles and a fancy brush pen (that you get to keep), you'll learn how to fancify your own handwriting to make your own style of lettering. Then, for the final portion of the class, we'll label your botanical prints with your new handwriting and white pens. You can put the scientific name of your plants on the print if you want to follow the classic route, or you can think of a couple words or a quote to write down! You'll walk away with a framed print and two other cyanotype prints to gift or to keep for yourself. You'll receive: *fancy new brush pen *white pen for writing on your print *3 sheets of 4x6 cyanotype ("sun print") paper *white frame for your favorite print *a selection of dried flowers and leaves to make your print with What are my parking options for the event?
