Cyanotype workshop at The Random Tea Room, July 16, 2017

Sunday July 16th 11AM

Revel in the glory of the powerful rays of the sun with printmakers from BYO Print, and make traditional-style cyanotype prints, also known as sun prints. 

We provide all the materials you'll need to make a unique print to take home. You can also BYO objects to use that are opaque and flattish. Feathers, pressed flowers, stencils are great for this. 

Spend an afternoon in the backyard of the tea room with an Iced Tea and good company. RSVP via email to Workshop cost is $10 per person, and you will make one print. (Because of the cost of supplies for this workshop, you can make additional prints for an additional fee.)
