Sci-Fi Cyanotype
with Machine Project and Edendale Branch Library
Date & Time
August 5, 2017, 11:00am–4:00pm
Echo Park Lake

Are you jealous of Monet’s Blue Period? Have you not touched a sci-fi novel since Fahrenheit 451 in Middle School? Are you eager to learn a new printing process?

Come join us and our neighbors from the Edendale Branch Library on Saturday, August 5th for a day of sci-fi reading and cyanotype-making at Echo Park Lake. The drop-in workshop will culminate with a community mural on the facade of the Edendale library. We’ll be set up in front of the Lady of the Lake Statue from 11:00 am to 4:00pm. Stop by anytime. We’ll offer all materials and objects to print with, or you can bring your own!

Cyanotype is a printing process that uses both ammonium iron (III) citrate and potassium ferricyanide for a chemical reaction that, when exposed to direct sunlight, leaves an imprint of an object in cyan-blue.

The Edendale library is providing a wide array of sci fi novels and graphic novels for inspiration. The library will also be the final home for the mural composed of all our prints. Think of it as a community time-capsule!

Open to all ages!

Light Refreshments will be provided.
