This darkroom-intensive series of classes is designed for beginning, intermediate, and refresher students who are interested in learning the basics of alternative process photography. Participants should be able to process their own film and B&W prints prior to enrolling. Sessions may be taken sequentially or a la carte.
1) Enlarged Negatives
Saturday & Sunday, August 9 & 10, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Learn how to get from your small format in-camera negatives to large format negatives suitable for contact printing using the interpositive process. We’ll cover the types of negatives needed for each of the processes in the series, and focus on creating those negatives for your upcoming classes. This class does not cover digital negatives. Please contact CPAC for information on upcoming digital negative workshops.
2) Cyanotype & Van Dyke Brown
Saturday & Sunday, August 23 & 24, 10:00 am – 5:00 am
This workshop will introduce you to two of the simplest yet most versatile of the historic processes. Learn the science behind the reductive iron processes, plus the basics of hand coating, contact printing,
and processing. We’ll also experiment with different papers and alternative supports.
3) Gum Bichromate & Salted Paper Prints
Saturday & Sunday, September 6 & 7, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
A bit more advanced than the iron processes, salt and gum printing have similar negative requirements
but very different coating and processing needs. Learn the science behind the processes, the basics of hand coating and processing, then focus on the process of your choice for more in-depth experimentation.
