Tuesday, 6-8pm
Katherine Akey

Course Description

In this class students will get to explore the photographic process of cyanotype on textiles to create unique imagery in combination with basic embroidery embellishments. Students will be introduced to the alternative process of cyanotype on fabric and will also learn drawing with thread techniques to enhance, add, layer and respond to the resulting imagery. Combining these different techniques we will create unique works that cross the boundaries of photography, drawing, and textile arts. Previous cyanotype experience preferred. Materials list will be provided.

Requirement

Photo Center Orientation is not required for this class, but it is required if student wishes to come to the Photo Center outside the workshop to develop film on their own and/or print their own photos in the Darkroom.
