A Great Night at Newark Print Club 5/1/13

We had a great night at Newark Print CLub on 5/1/13.  I gave a short lecture about the history of cyanotypes, followed by a workshop showing how to make them.  Stephen McKenzie had donated a UV Light Box to the Newark Print CLub, and we were all able to experiment in making cyanotypes with the pre-treated paper I had brought.  Thanks to Lisa Conrad for hosting the event, and Jackie Cruz for photographing.  If you are interested in Newark Print Club, it is located at 585 Broad St. Newark, NJ.  Open to the public on Wednesday nights, with a suggested $10 donation for materials.

Cyanotype Workshop Tonight at Newark Print Club

Newark Printshop 585 Broad Street, Newark, NJ 7pm
We have a homemade exposure unit in the house courtesy of Stephen McKenzie! Our first adventure with this new equipment is an exploration of cyanotypes, a photographic printing process that gives a cyan-blue print, referred to as blueprints. Come out to Print Club next Wednesday and learn all about Cyanotypes with local artist Colleen Gutwein. She will be sharing some of her recent work and then giving a demonstration of the process. Afterwards, there will be prepared paper for participants to explore the process. Please bring transparencies, large photographic negatives, and/or plant material to use as stencils for creating imagery.
