ONSITE: Introduction to Loom Weaving

The magic of this alternative photographic process transforms plain fabric into beautiful, deep blue-hued works of art. In this course, students will gain a solid understanding of the history and basics of cyanotype printing; experiment with creating unique patterns, designs, and arrangements on their fabric through contact printing; as well as drawing your own designs onto negatives. Suitable for beginners and experienced artists alike.
