Garibaldi Hosts Cyanotype Workshop & California Kelp Forest Sustainability Reception

Garibaldi, the Sardinian inspired rooftop hotspot in downtown San Diego, invites guests to join them on a workshop on Saturday, April 15 to learn the art of cyanotype.

Cyanotype Workshop

Garibaldi Hosts Cyanotype Workshop & California Kelp Forest Sustainability Reception

A 170 year old photographic printing process, cyanotype uses sunlight to produce prints in a distinctive dark greenish-blue, and enjoy delicious sustainable seafood dishes all while supporting ocean conservation. This event is presented in partnership with acclaimed local photographer and marine scientist, Oriana Poindexter, and the environmental non-profit, Reef Check California.

Oriana Poindexter, the acclaimed artist behind the restaurant’s striking site-specific cyanotype installation, “Giants of Point Loma”, will guide guests as they create their own frame worthy cyanotype, or sun print, to take home using native kelp, seaweed and natural materials harvested responsibly from San Diego’s ocean and shoreline.

Food and beverage offerings

During the interactive cyanotype workshop, guests will enjoy tray-passed bites including Culurgiones Friti with local rock crab, potato, telligio and brown butter emulsion; Local Opah Meatballs served with a spicy ‘nduja tomato sauce, sheep milk yogurt, and mint; and Sogliole Alla Parmigiana made with San Diego sand dabs, mirto fume, pecorino sardo, frisée, sea grass, and parsley. A full bar featuring Garibaldi’s signature cocktails will also be available for purchase.
