Make & Take: Summer Cyanotypes

This event has already passed Location: Atrium

Join us for a guided art-making series for adults, one Thursday every month. Drop by and stay as long as you want. Whether it's a few minutes or an hour, you'll leave with a new skill and your own creation. No previous experience necessary and all materials provided for the first 100 people.

Learn the process of cyanotype printmaking on fabric using objects to make designs or transparencies of artworks in the DMA's collection. By placing objects on top of the treated fabric and letting it sit in the sun, you'll leave with a beautiful indigo creation. Please note that the workshop will start at 4:30 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m. since the sun is an important part of this process.
