This workshop explores sunlight-developed dyes printed on fabric. We will experiment with SolarFast dye + cyanotype treated fabric. Students can solar print with found objects, hand cut paper shapes, or draw on transparency paper. For those with Photoshop experience, photo negatives (inverted black+white images) can be printed on transparency paper to achieve a photographic image once solar printed.
