Let’s learn two printmaking techniques: cyanotype (blueprint) and rubbings.
Both techniques create one of kind results. Participants will make and take home fabrics they have created using these techniques. Cyanotype is a blueprint image using natural materials or a transparent overlay with created designs on the chemically treated cloth or paper. When exposed to light, the image creates negative space (white) on the blue background. Rubbings are created by rubbing a special crayon on cloth over a natural plants or grasses. Completed pieces can be incorporated in quilts. Examples of completed projects will be shown.
Students will create the fabric, not the finished quilt.
Supply fee is $15 per student and includes 4 - 8” x 11” specially treated cyanotype fabric, treated paper for cyanotype, premium white muslin and sheer fabrics for rubbings. I will have light boxes to process the cyanotypes indoors.
