Cyanotype Photography: Printing From a Digital Negative with Tonya Lemos

May 17 @ 9:30 am 3:30 pm

< Back to Workshops

Friday, May 17, 9:30am-3:30pm (1-hour lunch break)

1 sessions |  $140 for members, $160 for non-members

$10 discount when you sign-up for Tonya’s previous workshop.

This is a stand-alone class, however some of the techniques are more fully explained in the previous days classes. Please only sign up for the add-on day if you have experience with the cyanotype process or have also signed up for the intro workshop. 

In this workshop we will be creating cyanotypes from your digital images/photographs.

In the process you will learn how to create and print your own digital negatives and then expose and develop them as cyanotype prints. Digital negatives are made on site from your digital files.


Tony(a) Lemos is currently the Director of Blazing Star Herbal School in Conway, MA. Since 2000, she has been offering a year long apprenticeship in both Herbal Studies and Botanical Art. Blazing Star also offers popular classes in ceremonial plant work, EcoPrinting, Alternative Photography Methods and plant immersions. 

In addition, Tony(a) is a well-known lecturer on current herbal medicine topics, a published writer, community herbalist, ecological activist, artist and beloved mentor. Her artwork explores symbolism from her ancestry (Greek/Middle East) and her present sense of place on Pocumtuc/Nipmuc territory, also known as Western Massachusetts, with a heavy focus on Flora. 

Her media forms include eco-printing, relief printing and alternative photography methods, often combining mixed media and found objects. She is also committed to supporting women and non-binary artists, especially those working at the intersection of art and botany. Her most recent solo show, Local Wonder, presented at The Common Folk Gallery in North Adams, was an ode to Rachel Carson.
