Cyanotype Photogram Production
Add to your calendar
Date: June 27, 1:00 pm
Continues Until: June 28
Location: Center for the Arts Crested Butte
Details: Using a photographic process developed in the early 1800s, produce cyanotype photograms with local artist and owner of the Grubstake Gallery, Kimbre Woods.  Cyanotype is an iron-based process where students use non-toxic chemicals to create photographic paper.  Cyanotype photograms are produced not by taking photos in the traditional sense, but rather by using a variety of items to block light on the surface of your paper as the chemicals develop in the sunshine.  Choose to arrange a compelling composition from items provided by the instructor, such as broken flowers, weeds, and blades of grass. Bring your own items, such as a lacy family heirloom or a clear cassette tape, keeping in mind that flat or soft items are easier to work with as they can be pressed under glass. If you have a drawing that you are especially proud of, bring it to the class, and learn how to refine and make a photographic negative out of your own drawing. 
   
Over two days, learn how to choose paper, make preparations, coat your work surface with emulsion, various printing techniques, and how to process and finalize an image.  Experiment with options to finish your work, such as bleaching, tea toning and hand tinting.  Leave with both a variety of small prints and a finalized and matted 8” x 12” photogram. Instructor: Kimbre Woods.

Tuesday June 27 - Wednesday June 28

ABOUT Kimbre Woods
Photography and I have been pushing each other in different ways for over half my life now, and I am so grateful for the journey and all the lessons along the way. Having the ability to focus my energies on capturing all that I love about Crested Butte and its pristine surroundings in the Gunnison National Forest is the most rewarding aspect of my career in photography. Through my photographs I have a voice that softly speaks to my viewer about the precious quality of our environment.  I think of my images as a collection of icons of nature who further consideration and preservation. Each image references my values and ideas, both of which are found in the outdoors. I fully explore my images though various historical photographic processes. I currently print in Palladium, Cyanotype, Van Dyke Brown, Argyrotype, and Tricolor Gum Bichromates. All of these processes are from the 1800s and are UV sensitive photographic chemicals. I also colorize many of images by hand tinting with water color, and or tea toning them to give them various moods. As I work with an image, I develop a deeper relationship with it. Playing with it over and over again, I create a diverse collection of originals of each individual image.  May my work find you well, it is my hop that is soothes the pace of your life, and remind you to hole what is not lost as precious.
