Cyanotype Canvas Totes, Saturday, July 25


Title: Cyanotype Canvas Totes


Description: Cyanotype is a one-of-a-kind, non-toxic monochrome photographic printing process that yields a cyan-blue print.


We will create two cyanotype canvas totes with your choice of a variety of images that I will supply ranging from an anchor and snowflakes to a butterfly and heart. I will have letter stencils as well to write words.


Date: Saturday, July 25, 2020


SUN: We will be using the sun as our light source, so if we have a very grey day or a rainy day we will have to reschedule the workshop.


Time: 11 am-1 pm


Cost: $75 (includes materials fee)

For each of my workshops, I have one space set aside for Pay What You Can if you truly cannot afford the cost. My wish is to make my workshops accessible to all and this is one way to make that possible. Please contact me directly at and let me know what you can afford.
