This Library project will show what this community can do to stay "connected" during these uncertain times.

Our goal is to make an interconnected chain of cyanotype "flags" to string throughout our beautiful porch by September 26th, World Cyanotype Day. An art installation of sorts!

Beginning July 14th you may come to the Library and pick up a packet with materials and directions, take it home to create your own cyanotype with the help of the sun. You will return it to us by September 21st, washed and dried and we will assemble the "flag" chains and hang them on the porch. We will continue handing out packets until they are gone and assemble the chains as the finished prints are returned.

Participation in this project will be fun and easy for children as well as adults.

As with our 1000 origami crane project, we know this will be a beautiful example of what our community can create together!
