Exoplanet Inspired Cyanotypes with Betsy Kenyon

Inspired by our forthcoming Scientific Controversies: Exoplanets event on November 7 (more details to come), come explore the exoplanets—any planet beyond our solar system—orbiting our imagination with Resident Alum, Betsy Kenyon.

Learn the process of cliché-verre, or glass printing, and use the star we circle to make iron-rich cyanotypes outdoors.

Date: This in-person workshop will meet on Saturday, October 16 from 1-3pm.

Price: $75

Audience: Open to all.

Materials: Materials will be provided.
