In honor of Juneteenth, the Tate House Museum is offering an
Imagining Freedom Cyanotype Workshop
with Re-Site 2024 artist Ashley Page
from 12 noon – 3:00 pm
Participants will start by gaining an in-depth learning session about the history of the Tate House, Stroudwater Village, and the state of Maine from Ashley and Tate House Museum’s executive director Holly K. Hurd and consulting curator Laura F. Sprague which will be grounded in the theme of Imagining Freedom. Following this, we will explore these themes through cyanotypes. Participants are encouraged but not required to bring found objects, ephemera, or materials with personal significance. For example: grass, hair, beads, rocks, shells, feathers, fabric, inks, special papers, etc.
Advance tickets cost $30 each and include all materials. Space is limited to 25. Visit for tickets.
Please note, due to the cyanotype process, sunlight is essential. *Rain date for this event is Sunday, June 23, *2-5 pm*. Please be mindful of both dates when signing up.
The Tate House Museum will also be open to the public for a Community Day of free admission on June 19th from 10 am – 4 pm with tours every hour on the hour at 10:00 am, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00, 2:00, 3:00 pm.
