BGA BUTLER ROOM
Join artist Jocelyn Mathewes as you create beautiful blue botanical art prints using the oldest historic photographic process, cyanotype.
In this workshop, participants will see examples of what’s possible with the cyanotype process and get an introduction to the chemicals and equipment needed. We will create images on both paper and fabric. By the end, attendees will have at least three pieces to take home, a resource list, and knowledge to make their own cyanotypes.
Jocelyn is a fine artist working in mixed media and photography, living with her husband and three children in Johnson City, Tennessee. Her background includes English literature, graphic design, and commercial photography. Her work has been published in SHOTS and The HAND magazine. Recently, she exhibited at the William King Museum of Art. Her website, www.jocelynmathewes.com, features Jocelyn’s writings on motherhood and the creative process.
