Weaving Light and Memory: Plant Cyanotypes

Weaving Light and Memory: Plant Cyanotypes with Lion’s Tooth Project

Presented By

Lion’s Tooth Project

Saturday, April 27th | 12PM – 6PM

Meet us at the Activity Area on the Lawn, drop in anytime!

All ages welcome.

In this family activity we will explore what plants have to teach us about migration, borders and our diverse identities utilizing a cyanotype photographic process. We will use cuttings of native and non-native plants of the West Coast to creatively engage in this conversation. Participants will learn the basics of the cyanotype process, the history and usage of these plants and then apply their understanding to create an image reflective of their own family histories and legacies on to a 6 inch photosensitive fabric.

PRESENTER BIO

Lion’s Tooth Project empowers LGBTQ+ youth and allies to have agency over their wellness, healing and personal stories through photography and herbal medicine at the intersection of all of their diverse identities.
