Experience the joy of one of the earliest photographic printing processes while working from your own digital and/or analog images. This intensive workshop is designed to introduce students to the beautiful and versatile world of gum bichromate printing. Gum printing utilizes a contact negative and non-silver emulsion to produce delicate, painterly images that permit a high degree of artistic expression. The basic process is simple and fun.
Class will cover all aspects of the gum process: paper preparation, negative preparation, and printing. Students should bring three to five images or a selection of digital image files to the first class.
This class meets in the 2D Studio (W20-425) and is taught by Thery Mislick. The price reflects the cost of the provided materials. All levels welcome.
