Summer Gum Workshop!

When: July 22/23

Cost: $375 plus tax

Gum Bichromate is one of the simplest and cost effective ways of making permanent colour and black and white prints.

Spend two days in the darkroom with Bob playing with this unique process.

Using your supplied images, we will make printing negatives via inkjet materials and then spend the time coating and printing.

This is not a formal technical workshop, but rather a simple two days of getting a handle of one of our most beautiful printing processes. Gum Bichromate with pigment is one of the oldest photographic processes and with the advent of digital technology, we can make simple negatives that 20 years ago would be out of the reach for most photographers.

This workshop is not intended to create perfect colour density or portfolio work, but rather bring together photographers with a variety of background to play with pigments to create a smorgasbord of possibilities. This workshop is for beginner print makers, no prerequisite is required.

By being exposed to multiple prints and methods of combining colour and black white pigments, each participant can gage whether this is a viable process for their practice.
