Cyanotype Workshop in Sylvia's Studio and Garden Sunday May 19th 2024



Cyanotype Workshop in Sylvia's Studio and Garden Sunday May 19th 2024


Join us for a day of creative fun sun printing in Sylvia's floriferious gardens!

Sun printing is produced on a special cyanotype cotton fabric that gives white and blue images on a deeper indigo background. The process is very simple: images such as leaves or grasses, paper silhouettes or designs drawn on transparencies are placed over dry cyanotype fabric, exposed to the sun or a UV lamp for 5-10 minutes, then rinsed and dried. The fabric is then ready to use as a quilt block, pillows, clothing.

We will work outside in the garden; if it rains, we will use a big UV sunlamp in Sylvia's studio.

Workshop fee includes 1 yd blue cyanotype fabric and assorted colored cyanotype squares

Bring to class:

  • cloth and paper scissors
  • thimble if you use one
  • Images to cyanotype such as: fresh and pressed leaves, flowers, grasses, paper cut-outs, lace. Thin-petalled flowers such as cosmos & clematis print really well. Also any finely cut leaves such as Japanese Maple, pine, or cedar boughs. I will have loads of botanicals, photo negatives, and paper silhouettes for you to work with too.
  • Wear clothes you don't mind getting splashed when we rinse our prints.

Looking forward to a fun creative day La Conner!
