Botanical Blueprints: Intro to Cyanotype Workshop

Led by: Linda Clark Johnson

Date & Time: Saturday, May 13, 2023 from 10am to 2pm

Location: 6th Street Studios & Art Center | 64 W 6th St, Gilroy, CA 95020

You don’t need to be an artist to enjoy making beautiful blue cyanotypes (also known as "sunprints")! In this introductory class, you’ll learn all the basics of this amazing alternative photographic technique. Using light sensitive chemicals, you’ll expose prints in the sun and process them in water. By the time you leave, you’ll have four gorgeous, 8” x 10” blueprints and the know-how to create more at home. With all the beautiful plants budding and blooming each season, let’s celebrate the natural world by making botanical blueprints together! 


Open to all levels. No experience is necessary.


All art materials will be provided. 

Students will need to bring fresh or pressed foliage and flowers, a water bottle, and a lunch.

About the Artist:

Linda Clark Johnson creates original artwork using the cyanotype process. Cyanotype is a historical photographic technique that uses UV light for exposures and produces deep blue images. Linda prints using local plants in her sunny Sacramento back yard. She’s been having fun perfecting her experimental printing style and sharing her knowledge with students of all ages for many years. She holds a BA in Art, a Masters in Education, and a teaching credential. Her experience in the arts and enthusiastic teaching style combine to make her classes clear, creative and fun!


In the case that minimum class enrollment is not met 3 days prior to the workshop, Colibri Gallery will cancel the workshop and issue you a full refund. We will also let you know if the class is rescheduled for a future date.


We know plans change! For a full refund, please contact the gallery at least 2 weeks before the workshop.
