An Introduction to Cyanotypes with Misa Chhan
Poster House is pleased to welcome artist and printmaking expert Misa Chhan for an introduction to Cyanotype printing. Known for their brilliant blue hues, cyanotypes are a photosensitive printing process that utilizes UV light to transfer images. Learn the basics of this historic form of printmaking as well as techniques for shifting tones from blue to brown. Participants will leave with materials to continue experimenting in the medium at home. No previous experience required.
Misa Chhan is a Los Angeles-based artist who works with natural dyes, textiles, printmaking, and artist’s books. Her background in book arts, papermaking, and natural fibers led her to explore natural dyes and fibers as a medium to engage with and learn from the natural world. Through her art practice, Chhan aims to create a container of pure joy to demonstrate our fundamental interdependency with nature, thereby challenging the extractive mindset of domination.
