Step Into Summer with Cyanotype Shoes
Instructor, Lesley Patterson-Marx will guide you through the process of making your own pair of hand sewn espadrille shoes from fabric that you print yourself! You will create your fabric designs through a fascinating historical photographic process called cyanotype. Cyanotype, known for its rich blue color, is a process in which a chemical reaction with sunlight helps to create the impression of whatever is placed on its surface. On the first Saturday of the workshop, students will use lace, found objects, plants, and more to create the patterns on the surface of pre-treated cyanotype fabric. Later that day, students will be begin preparing their patterns and sewing the upper part of their shoes.
