This hands-on 2 1/2 hour workshop is an introduction to one of the first photographic processes ever developed. The cyanotype process, also known as blueprint or sunprint utilizes photosensitive iron salts and continues to be relevant today to produce fine art prints. This process can be done with paper and fabric. This workshop will focus on cyanotype paper. You will design, expose in the sun, and develop in water your own cyanotypes. An UV lamp will be available if the sun is not showing up that day.

Perron is the founder of the Laboratory of Feminist Pataphysics (2000 —), a social experiment that masquerades as collaborative works of art/craft and events.
