Join The Hillyer Art Space for bagels and coffee as we learn about the cyanotype process from DC-based artist Katherine Akey. Akey will discuss her influences, her trip to the Arctic Circle, and how these have come together to inform her practice. Following her talk, Akey will lead a workshop on cyanotype prints using handmade stencils. As a celebration of FotoWeekDC, the workshop will delve into the method of photographic printing developed in the mid-1800s – a method which produces a cyan-blue print. Originally used to reproduce notes or blueprints, the process was quickly adapted to print silhouettes of objects and stencils.


The workshop is $22 for members, $30 for non-members. Click here for tickets!
