Photogravure Workshop With Karen Hymer

This one day workshop of photopolymer gravure making was packed full of eager to learn students. This trial-and-error process allowed students to created magnificent and unique prints that captured the eye.

Carol Henry’s Hanging Cyanotypes

Here’s how Carol Henry made the large hanging cyanotypes in the Spellbinding Light exhibition. Be sure to see the installation to truly appreciate the beauty of these incredible life-size fabric, cyanotype photogram prints.

First the fabric was treated in a darkroom with cyanotype chemistry, and the photogram model and objects were artfully arrange on the fabric,
then after a long exposure in the sunshine on a sunny Carmel day,
the fabric was developed to a stunning cyanotype blue with the garden hose,
and the final fabric lined cyanotype hangs in Spellbinding Light.
Photogram objects carefully placed on cyanotype sensitized fabric,
after sunshine exposure and garden hose developing,
results in this beautiful fabric lined cyanotype hanging in Spellbinding Light.
