  • Ox-Bow 3435 Rupprecht Way Saugatuck, MI 49453 (map)

with Tegan Brace

$60 per family  

Cyanotype is a photographic process that uses sun or other forms of UV light to process a resist image. In this workshop, participants will to scour the oxbow grounds and their own belongings to create a time based print that is representative of discovery and fun in the sun at Ox-Bow. Images can be abstract or literal. Students are encouraged to engage their bodies in this most physical process. We will discuss as a team how the form will affect our final image. Work is processed on site in the meadow and hung to dry. Students may work with paper or fabric. We will create one collaborative print with our bodies.


Tegan Brace is a Chicago-based artist with a BFA from Appalachian State University and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has one foot in materiality, one foot in installation, and a third foot (3 feet!) in performance. With cyanotype Tegan creates Cyanotans that consider work, relaxation, and performative process in public spaces.
