Workshop: Cyanotype Prints

If I Were Wild

Mimicking the process of film photography, we will create cyanotype prints using paper, water, and light. Using common plants and weeds, we will explore the different ways we can see ourselves and how we can find mirrors of ourselves in nature and its wildness. Participants will be encouraged to pick plants that speak to them and then be led through the process of making their very own cyanotype print to take with them.


Born in rural north Idaho, where she spent her childhood building homes for resident fairies, Brooklyn-based Dana Perry now spends most of her days gallivanting around Prospect Park with her daughter (who loves to wave at “baby mugwort”). She holds a certificate from ArborVitae and an MA in sociology from The New School.

Lacey grew up in the wild rose country of Alberta, Canada and is a graduate of ArborVitae’s three year herbalism program. She believes that connection to ourselves, each other and the earth is elemental to wellbeing. Her current favorite cup of tea is lemon balm and tulsi.
