Salt printing is one of the oldest photographic printing processes and is a predecessor of the traditional black and white photography. The process was invented around 1835 by the British scientist and photographer Henry Fox Talbot. Until around 1860 it was the most commonly used method to print photographs. The salt print derives it’s name from the fact that the paper is made light sensitive by using (among other chemicals) ordinary table salt.
In this workshop you will learn how to make your own salt prints based on your own work (digital files). This workshop is accessible for people with little experience with photographic processing.
Cyanotype or “Blue print”
This one-day, hands-on workshop will introduce you to one of the earliest ways of creating an image with light. Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. It uses relatively safe chemicals making this process accessible even for people who have little experience with photographic chemistry. This intensive workshop will give you a thorough grounding in making cyanotype prints of your own work, and the chance to experiment on different types of paper.
All workshops are organized by Art Chapel please visit their website for more details about locations/dates or if you want to sign up.
