Creating Cyanotypes

Saturday, April 14, 2018 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

In conjunction with the Old Capitol Museum's current exhibit, Faces of Iowa through the Early Lens, we invite you to explore early Iowa City photography history by experimenting with cyanotypes! Invented in 1842, cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print.  We will take a closer look at Iowa City's first prominent photographer, Isaac Wetherby, and explore the exhibit. This workshop is made possible by State Historical Society of Iowa, Iowa City. Materials will be provided.

Cost: $10 suggested donation
Limited to 15 participants, registration is required. Email Kathrine Moermond,, to reserve a spot
