Sun Prints with Reed Siems

Sun prints are made on special paper that is light sensitive. On Saturday, June 25, area residents are invited to the Workspace at the Iowa State Memorial Union to take part in this craft. Place objects on the paper, expose the materials to the sun and the area exposed to the sun will fade from blue to white. Some elements from nature, leaves and flowers, will be available, but you can bring in your own objects to try. Drop in and give yourself at least 30 minutes to finish. Cost is $5 for two 5” x 7” sheets. All ages are welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult.
