Magical and simple, cyanotypes are a camera-less technique that creates blue and white prints — an alternative photographic process using a light-sensitive solution on paper, sunlight and pressed plants to make beautiful botanical images.

Madge Evers encourages the group to bring objects or pressed plants with interesting silhouettes from home to use in their compositions and print on tote bags.

Madge Evers is an educator, gardener and visual artist whose work celebrates decomposition and regeneration. She has been paying close attention to signs of fungi since 2015, when she began making mushroom spore print art. Her practice involves foraging for mushrooms and plants and sometimes includes the cyanotype process and paint.

Artist residencies in Ireland, at the Oak Spring Garden Foundation, Mount Auburn Cemetery, the Kinney Renaissance Center at UMass, on Cape Cod, and in Maine have allowed Evers to interact with landscapes and their histories. She teaches cyanotype workshops to people of all ages and lives and works in Western Massachusetts.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
