Learn how to make cyanotypes and simple books! Registration is open for Beth Dow‘s Handmade Photography: Intro to Cyanotype Printing class at North House Folk School, August 13-14, in Grand Marais, on the North Shore of Lake Superior.

This class will combine elements of photography and the book arts, focusing on the slow pleasures of craft. Students will learn about the simple chemistry behind this iron-based process as we print on paper and fabric. Students can make prints of pressed flowers from their home gardens, favorite hand tools, or patterns made with cut paper negatives or found objects. Students are encouraged to experiment! The course will also cover the fundamentals of book binding techniques, constructing portfolios and small books to contain the new cyanotypes. Come explore the handmade side of photography. No camera is required for this class.
