Capturing Summer with Cyanotypes

Cyanotype is a process where an image is captured using UV and once developed produces a cyan blue print. Discovered by English scientist and astronomer Sir John Herschel in 1842, cyanotype photograms became very popular in Victorian England, with engineers using the process well into the 20th century to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints.

During this class you will be capturing your own impressions of Summer using a cyanotype process on both paper and fabric. Plus you’ll learn how to apply modifiers and shift the color of each of your pieces.

Please bring copy of receipt printed or on mobile device when you come to class. Thanks.

About Candice Brokenshire

Candice graduated with a Psychology(Hons) degree in Great Britain, but chose to continue to work in London theaters, a pursuit she had started from an early age. Earning an appreciation and a jack-of-all-trades sensibility of the many artistic skills involved in live production – each with an emphasis on being able to tell a story. Building on that foundation she moved to a career in experiential design, conceiving experience narratives, plus staging them for various industries including automotive. For several years this entailed being on assignment in Detroit with clay underfoot in an automaker’s advanced design studio, developing stories alongside the concept car designers. This career path enabled further exposure to different mediums of storytelling and along with further training in color theory, textiles, design theory and material sustainability, today Candice can be found in her Laguna Canyon studio, where she creates art and functional objects with wool; spinning, felting and dyeing it naturally with plants and extracts.
