Cyanotype Nature Walk

Date: Saturday, August 3, 10:00 am - 11:30 am

With the summer rains and abundant blossoming of local plants it is easy to capture the beauty of nature using the magic of cyanotype, a photographic print process, also called a “sun print.” In this creative class, we will take a short walk in downtown Prescott to observe our local medicinal flora, selectively collecting specimens to create your own one of a kind cyanotype nature handkerchief. Each student will be supplied with one blank cotton handkerchief that we will use to explore the science of cyanotypes and create outlines of our favorite local plants.
