Mardon Art Workshop

Mardon enjoyed their session with a local artist who showed us how to create a cyanotype. Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. It was an early form of photography used well into the 20th century as as simple and low cost process to produce copies of drawings referred to as blueprints. We drew fruit or vegetables onto acetate with a Sharpie which was used to block the sunlight from the special paper. The designs will be printed onto a table cloth that we will use for a school feast.
