More Info

Celebrate FotoWeekDC and learn about the cyanotype process with DC-based artist Katherine Akey. Join us for bagels and coffee while Akey discusses her influences, her trip to the Arctic Circle, and how these have come together to inform her practice. Following her talk, Akey will lead a workshop on cyanotype prints using hand-made stencils.

Cyanotype is a method of photographic printing developed in the mid-1800s that produces a cyan-blue print. Originally used to reproduce notes or blueprints, the process was quickly adapted to print silhouettes of objects and stencils. Akey will discuss her interest and adaptation of cyanotypes, and instruct participants on how to cut and make a handmade stencil and use these to create cyanotype prints. All materials will be provided.
$22 for members, $30 for non-members
