Have you been wondering where the Black & White group has disappeared to? We're still here, hiding in the dark as usual.
This fall and winter, the program will primarily be an open studio workshop based model.
An open studio means just that. It's open. Chemistry for printing is provided, paper is your responsibility, however I have paper and you are welcome to reimburse me, at cost. I will be working through my process and you are welcome to join.
Any guidance or help that you need is absolutely available, just ask, don't feel uncomfortable. If there is a process (basic printing, contact sheets, maximum black, f-stop printing, push or pull processing, solarization, sabbatier, toning) that you are interested in or curious about, ask. If you prefer pinhole, bring your camera, work through your process.
If you just want to work through a few prints and feel uncomfortable coming into the darkroom on your own to set up, this is a perfect and safe opportunity to get accustomed to working in the space.
This year is about building confidence and experience.
I will be in the darkroom on the following Sundays from 1-4pm for open workshops:
Sep 18, Sep 25, Oct 2, Oct 9, Oct 30, Nov 6, Nov 13, Nov 20, Nov 27, Dec 4, Dec 11 Jan 29, Feb 5, Feb 19, Feb 26 and Mar 5.
