Workshops

 

At 139 Printroom we have noticed a distinct resurgence of interest in analogue photography. Also, that interest doesn’t just come from people of a certain age. I’m increasingly being asked by interested students if they can interview me for their university course work. So I’ve not been too surprised to be asked if I ran workshops. I have taught what are usually termed “Alternative Processes” at university degree level, so I have decided to put a series of workshops together for anyone interested in  Platinum/Palladium, Albumen and Salt  printing. They are taught on a one to one basis so the student has my undivided attention and arranged for your convenience, week day or weekend. The workshops take place at my darkroom in Wirksworth Derbyshire. Please get in touch to arrange a suitable time.

 

THE PLATINUM/PALLADIUM PRINT

platinum/palladium print

For many this is the ultimate photographic print. With it’s delicate, broad range of tones and archival permanence it gives added value and is number one for the serious collector. During the course you will learn about paper types, the chemicals involved, coating the paper and exposing and developing the print. On the second day you will learn how to create digital negatives perfectly suited for any contact printing process. Cost for a 2 day course £650 which includes all materials and refreshments but not lunch.

THE ALBUMEN PRINT

_D0Q3934

Developed as an advance on the Salt Print it is a lengthy process but one well worth mastering. During the course you will learn about paper types, the chemicals involved, coating the paper and exposing and processing the print. On the second day you will learn how to create digital negatives perfectly suited for any contact printing process. Cost for a 2 day course £650 which includes all materials and refreshments but not lunch.

THE SALT PRINT

This is the original printing process invented by William Henry Fox-Talbot in the 1830s. During the course you will learn about paper types, the chemicals involved, coating the paper and exposing and developing the print.
