Cyanotype Workshop: Drawing in Four Dimensions

Dive into the process of Cyanotype in this intensive weekend workshop! Cyanotype is a photographic technique that exposes images in sunlight.

- Results of using different types of paper and other surfaces for printing
- How to make test prints to set exposure time in varying weather conditions
- Tips for creating a sharper image, or a blurred "in-motion" image
- Experimental techniques for drawing and painting with Cyanotype
- Using tea to create varied tones
- Introduction to the history of Cyanotype and examples of artists, both historical and contemporary

Botanical Drawing Exhibition
Sep
3
to Sep 4

Botanical Drawing Exhibition

Please join us for a special exhibition of botanical illustrations created during the Botanical Drawing Workshop. The drawings and paintings on display were created through a process of close observation, both at the Prinzessinensgarten and the Berlin Drawing Room. 


The workshop is inspired by the Naturalists of the 19th century, who were simultaneously artists, explorers and scientists. Through the process of drawing from life, we are seeking to discover what kind of understanding and knowledge can be gained through direct observation. Does it have a different content or quality than knowledge acquired through more passive or indirect channels? Does the process of close observation, even when directed at mundane subject matter such as the weeds of Kreuzberg, yield something unexpected? 


Botanical Drawing Exhibition: September 3-4
Opening Reception with the artists: September 3, 2-5 pm
Open for viewing Sunday: 12-5 pm

Location: Prinzessinnengarten (Tiny Haus near the woodworking area)
Prinzenstr. 35 – 38 /  Prinzessinnenstr. 15 (U8 Moritzplatz), 10969 Berlin
