TIME: 1:30pm to 3:30pm
LOCATION: Bell Tower Brewing Co. (Outdoor Patio)
ADDRESS: 310 Park Ave Kent, OH 44240

I am thrilled to partner with Bell Tower Brewing Co. and hope you will join me on their garden patio for my cyanotype printmaking workshop. In this workshop, students will create a series of their own cyanotype prints using flowers and other natural objects. Art prints make great gifts or ready-to-frame home decor. We will also discuss alternative uses for your prints, such as how to create stationery sets, postcards or gift wrap.

Cyanotype printing uses a special light-sensitive paper that when exposed to sunlight results in a unique, high-contrast indigo and white print. We will arrange flowers, greenery, and other natural objects to create our prints. If you choose, you are welcome to bring natural elements (such as flowers, leaves, etc) from your own garden to personalize your prints. All skill levels are welcome. 

Students will Receive: 

  • 5 Sheets of 8" x 10" Photosensitive Paper
  • Templates for Sizing Prints
  • Guided Instruction
  • 10% Off Hazelmade Products Offered at Pop-Up Shop

Additional Supplies Provided: 

  • Flowers + Plant Material
  • Glass Plates for Exposing Prints
  • Cardboard for Transferring Print Elements
  • Speciality Clips for Securing Prints
  • Access to a Rinse + Drying Station

Alternate Date:
This workshop is scheduled for Sunday September 15th. We use natural sunlight to process our prints. In the event of rain or other inclement weather, the alternate date of Sunday September 22nd will be used. Please make sure you are available for both dates prior to registering for the workshop. Any cancelations will be communicated by email within 24 hours of the workshop's start time. Questions? Email me at

Other Details:
Please arrive 15 minutes early, class begins promptly at 1:30pm.
