Cyanotype Printing & Pamphlet Books

June 12 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

$38.00 – $52.00

Experiment with natural patterns and mindful making through cyanotypes! This class will focus on the basics of cyanotype printing techniques with fabric and paper to create a series of prints, fabric patches and a hand-bound book. Dive into the realm of this photographic printmaking process and book art method in this hands-on class as a way to connect to the season and objects around us. This workshop offers an amalgamation of outdoor foraging, printmaking, photography, bookmaking and fiber processes, thereby offering infinite possibilities for creativity within each mode of making. 

Participants will capture shadows through cyanotype printing, utilizing seasonally foraged plants of the region as well as everyday objects that hold memory or visual intrigue to print with on coated cotton fabric and watercolor paper. Prints will be created using either the power of the sun or an indoor UV light, depending on the weather. No experience with any techniques are necessary to join! 

About the instructor: Katama Murray (she/her) is an eco artist, educator, naturalist, and small business owner from Blue Hill, Maine. Her mixed media work and company, Teach Peace Prints, are inspired by place-based making and our interconnectedness to the environment. Living and studying throughout regions of New England and the Midwest, she has always been influenced by the outdoors and the ways in which we coexist with the natural world. Utilizing local, mindfully foraged natural materials, she layers print and fiber processes to visually communicate ideas, observations, and perpetual experimentation. Katama has a BFA in Printmaking from Plymouth State University in New Hampshire, and an MFA in Printmaking from Indiana University-Bloomington. She has taught workshops and exhibited work throughout New England and beyond, yet will always be drawn to the beauty of the Northeast coast. Tuning into the rhythm of the seasons and the plants that exist within those moments of time help to foster a deeper connection to local surroundings with respect, admiration, and care. With a passion for slow, multidisciplinary making, she strives to learn and teach together with people of all ages, hoping to inspire others to become more connected to the earth through the power of art and community.
