Blue and white botanical prints in front of a pumpkin

Workshop: Botanical Cyanotype

This program is sold out. Click here to join the waitlist.

Make beautiful seasonal cards and prints using the alternative photography method known as  Cyanotype. Participants will collect leaves and seeds in the landscape and arrange them on special paper to create a deep blue print with bright, ghost-white silhouettes. This historic photography method, otherwise known as blueprints (sunprints), is one of the earliest forms of photography, and offers participants the ability to perform something that seems like magic.

Accessibility: This workshop will take place primarily in the wheelchair accessible Hunnewell Lecture Hall, plus an optional, self-guided exploration of the landscape to collect plant material.

In the event of inclement weather, registrants will be notified via email. If you have questions, please email or call the Visitor Center desk between 10:00am and 4:00pm at (617) 384-5209.
