Embroidered Nature Cyanotypes

Collect your favorites plants and flowers to create a delightful composition using the photosensitive process of cyanotype art. Then layer embroidery floss techniques to add interest in this virtual art workshop!

Northern Lights Watercolor Painting Class Sample

Level up the childhood craft of nature cyanotypes, with fabric printing and embroidery!

Collect summer stems and layer them over treated fabric to create the classic wash of blue that makes up an original cyanotype. Then learn three embroidery techniques: chain stitch, satin stitch, and French knots to add color and interest to your final piece. Please note as this is a photosensitive process, a portion of this class will be done in darkness.
