A workshop with artist Elizabeth McTernan.
“Sun collaborations: A workshop introducing the cyanotype process” workshop on cyanotype which is a photographic printing process producing a cyan-blue print and can be performed on a variety of papers and textiles. While the photo chemicals are painted onto the print surface in a dark room, the print itself is made outside, under direct sunlight. The process uses two chemicals: ammonium iron (III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide, which are both safe to handle and easy to obtain.

Recent residencies include the RaumArs Artist-in-Residence-Programme in Finland (spring 2016), Hilsbach Kunst Kultur artist residency in Bavaria (fall 2016), and Nida Art Colony in Lithuania (spring 2015).
