In this workshop we will use sunshine to make botanical images on paper and fabric. Artist Caitlin Parker will guide you through the process of making cyanotype photograms, one of the oldest forms of photography that doesn't use a camera. Participants will learn how to prepare paper and fabric with light sensitive chemicals, compose images using pressed plants, and develop the prints in the summer sunshine! You will create several pieces on paper and fabric. The fabric can be used in a variety of sewing projects: quilting, zipper pouches, patchwork, applique, and more. Once you know this process, a wide variety of objects and materials can be used to create images, allowing for infinite possibilities! All pressed specimens and pre-treated paper and fabric will be provided.

NOTE:  The process depends on sunshine.  While it works on an overcast day, a truly rainy day would necessitate rescheduling the class.

Supplies: All supplies will be provided.  Students are welcome to bring their own specimens for printing.

Sustenance: Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
