Image By Elise Fisher Student from last workshop


A practical, hands on workshop that concentrates on two distinct Alternative Processes; Cyanotype, an Iron printing process that produces a striking Prussian Blue image and Van Dyke Brown, an Iron/Silver process that produces a beautiful and painterly sepia coloured image. The workshop covers every aspect of printing alternatively, from coating your paper, making your exposure, developing your print and toning your final image. Students will finish with a solid understanding of each process, its chemistry and practical tips to use in their own practice. An immensely enjoyable and practical workshop suitable for anyone with an interest in photography, printing, art or working without computers.

Students are required to send four digital images ahead of the workshop, which will then be made into large format inkjet negatives to be used during the workshop.
