Photography Fun For Kids: Cyanotype Workshop

Friday, July 30, 2021, 10:00am - 11:30am
1431 Waverley Street Palo Alto, CA 94301
This event was originally scheduled for July 2, 2021 and is now scheduled for July 30, 2021.
In this fun and engaging workshop on cyanotype for kids, students will learn about the history of the cyanotype photographic process whilst also creating their own striking blue cyanotype prints of plants to bring home. We will be looking at both historic and contemporary artists, from 19th century botanist and photographer Anna Atkins to Swiss composer Christian Marclay, who have used the process of cyanotype in their own bodies of work. As students create their own prints, they will learn more about the plants they are using—plants picked from Gamble’s very own garden. No photography experience needed. We’d love to see all artists and garden enthusiasts for this workshop!
This workshop will be held at the Gamble Tea House. Suitable for ages 7-11.


$10 Member (use code IRIS) / $15 Non-member
