Cyanotype Photogram Class

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Hi Master Gardeners!

It is supposed to get cold this weekend. If you want to come to a warm greenhouse and learn a new art, join us at Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse. Master Gardener, Lindsay Obermeyer will be leading a Cyanotype Photogram class tomorrow, Saturday morning. Her work is at the Master Gardeners Plant Clinic at Garfield Park Conservatory.

You can register on site. Just come a little early. Here is the program information.

Cyanotype Photograms
Saturday, January 13 from 9 a.m.-Noon
Cost $30 (check or cash)
Cyanotypes (also known as blue prints) are one of the oldest and most beautiful photographic techniques. Discovered by Sir John Herschel in 1842, it was the scientist Anna Atkins' use of the medium for botanical purposes that established its popularity. Using sunlight and pretreated fabric, students will create their own fabulous photograms of leaves, flowers, and other natural materials collected from the greenhouse. All materials are provided.
