  • Overview

    Sunprinting is based on the cyanotype process, which has been used by artists since its development in the 19th century. Objects that block the sun’s light will show up white while the rest of the paper will turn a vibrant Prussian Blue. We'll spend some time collecting interesting winter botanicals and natural items outside (feel free to also bring some of your own!) then we'll create and develop several cyanotype images on both paper and fabric to take home.
    Pre-registration is required by January 15!
