About Facilitator

Praise Fuller (b. Houston, Texas) is a visual artist specializing in cyanotypes, an alternative photographic printing process. She explores the mutability of this medium by constantly expanding her practice through experimentation with print, installation, objects, video, and materials. 


On the weekend of the summer solstice, we gather for a playful and intentional collaboration between nature, visual art, and words. Exploring cyanotype printing, a photographic printing process that uses a photochemical reaction sensitive to ultraviolet and blue light emitted by the sun to create monochrome, blue-colored prints, we’ll use words and elements as our guides to create unique images.

Participants are encouraged to write original poems following a prompt or bring in poems/words that resonate with the prompt. Participants will explore the park in search of natural materials to make cyanotypes. The goal is to create a collage-like composition of words, natural materials, and shapes to create a cyanotype that welcomes summer in collaboration with nature itself.  The workshop is an introduction to image-making through the Prussian blue archival process.

What's Included:

  • Materials for cyanotypes

What to Bring:

  • Words or poem in response to the prompt (forthcoming)
  • Objects with distinct shapes to use for cyanotypes
  • Notebook and pen
  • Water bottle
  • Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses (optional)


This will be a 2-hour, outdoor workshop. Wheelchair and bathroom accessible. In case of inclement weather, we’ll notify participants 2 hours before the start of our program.
