Since winter solstice, each day has become brighter and lighter for longer. That is something that we can depend upon and use to help us find ways to take care of ourselves as we await spring's arrival. This workshop offers participants the opportunity to see more light, every day. Join us as we will create cyanotype nature prints, capturing the sun and the effect it has on elements from nature. Engaging in a series of therapeutic techniques, we will focus on overcoming the challenges of the season through mood boosting exercises.
