A virtual, hands-on workshop co-sponsored by The Interbay Cinema Society Educational Initiative and Northwest Film Forum.
Cyanotype is a blue-and-white photographic process that dates back to the 1840s. In this at-a-distance introductory workshop, we will explore creating cyanotypes on 16mm clear leader using sunlight, water, plant matter, and found objects. You'll get a kit in the mail with all the necessary materials, and artist Kate Lain will walk you through the process of 16mm cyanotype-making via Zoom. The emphasis of the workshop will be on experimentation and playing with materials, rather than on precision.
As part of the workshop, participants will also get practice creating cyanotypes on paper and fabric. The 16mm cyanotype film strips we create in the workshop will be combined into a collaborative film that will be digitized following the workshop. The resulting file will be emailed to participants and will go online sometime later this summer.
No prior film or cyanotype experience needed! Physical mailing address (P.O. box is fine) required to participate and receive kit. FULL WORKSHOP DETAILS AT bit.ly/nwffcyanotypes
This workshop will be offered on a sliding scale. If you have questions about the workshop, you can email Caryn Cline at email@example.com or Kate Lain at firstname.lastname@example.org
After the workshop, participants will mail their completed film strips to Kate Lain using a postage-paid envelope provided in the workshop kit. Caryn Cline will edit the everyone's cyanotype film strips into a collaborative film that will be digitized and shared with all participants, as well as online.
