Cyanotype Workshop with Maya Ciarrocchi
Hunts Point Riverside Park
As part of City of Water Day, a citywide celebration designed to foster appreciation for the importance of water around us, Wave Hill and Rocking the Boat are partnering with exhibiting artist Maya Ciarrocchi for a special drop-in workshop that takes place at Hunts Point Riverside Park. Designed for people of all ages, this workshop invites participants to make their own cyanotypes, or sun prints, an alternative photographic process using sunlight and natural materials. In addition to making cyanotypes, participants are also invited to sail on the Bronx River with professional staff through Rocking the Boat.
