Cyanotype Workshop with Madge Evers (Members Week 2023)

This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday September 20

11:00 AM  –  1:00 PM

Cyanotypes are one of the oldest photographic printing processes in the history of photography. The distinctive feature of the print is its shade of cyan blue, which results from its exposure to ultraviolet light.

Cyanotypes were first introduced by the astronomer, scientist, and botanist John Herschel in 1841. The cyanotype process was later used by botanist Anna Atkins Atkins to make the first ever photographic book in 1843.

Join Former MAC Artist-in-Residence Madge Evers for a workshop on how to make your own cyanotype compositions. Evers will teach participants an experimental form of the cyanotype process by which she will create a series of images on paper that use and depict the flora of Mount Auburn Cemetery.

Check-in for the workshop will be outside Story Chapel.
