“Printing with Silver and Iron” in Penland, North Carolina from November 1st – 7th.

The Penland School of Crafts will be holding a week-long workshop, taught by Heather Wetzel, called “Printing with Silver and Iron,” from November 1st through the 7th. The workshop description can be found below, and you can click here for more details and registration information.
“Beginning with an introduction to digital negatives and other means of photographic contact printmaking, we’ll explore the possibilities of the cyanotype process and two closely-related silver printing processes: salt and albumen. In addition to learning how to mix chemicals, make digital negatives for optimal image making, and the practicalities of printing and toning, we’ll consider further manipulation and mark making as well as final presentation of the prints produced in this workshop.”
