Cyanotype Wildflower Photo Production
Wildflower Festival Art Classes

Add to your calendar
Date: July 11, 1:00 pm
Location: The Art Studio
Details: Using a photographic process developed in the early 1800s, learn to produce and hand-tint cyanotype photos with local artist and owner of the Grubstake Gallery, Kimbre Woods. Cyanotype is an iron-based process where students use non-toxic chemicals, paper, and existing negatives of wildflowers to print unique, one-of-a kind handmade photographs. After the cyanotypes dry, learn techniques to hand-tint each photograph with washes of watercolor.  Assemble your favorite three photographs in a barn wood frame (included in price of class) for a stunning final piece of artwork. Instructor: Kimbre Woods.

About Kimber 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.
