Polymer Photogravure at Asheville Bookworks

posted on: October 5th, 2018

I will be teaching a polymer photogravure workshop in Asheville this autumn. This workshop will use a modern polymer coated plate to create an intaglio-etched surface, which will then produce the photographic gradation of tones making the photogravure one of the most beautiful continuous tone photographic printing process. The process presents a fantastic opportunity to expand the range of visual content that can be included in books and other similar projects. ⇒

Platinum-Palladium printing at Asheville Bookworks

posted on: October 28th, 2016

This class is an introduction to the platinum-palladium printing process. This particular alternative photographic printing process was invented in the 1870’s by William Willis. Because the process precipitates a chemically non-reactive noble metal into the paper fibers, it creates a print notable both for its permanence and its beauty. ⇒

Polymer Photogravure at Cullowhee Mountain Arts

posted on: June 26th, 2016

I will be teaching a polymer photogravure workshop at Cullowhee Mountain Arts in June, 2016. This workshop will be held at the campus of Western North Carolina University in Sylva, which is just a stone’s throw from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This workshop will use a modern polymer coated plate to create an intaglio-etched surface, which will then produce the photographic gradation of tones making the photogravure one of the most beautiful continuous tone photographic printing process. The process presents a fantastic opportunity to expand the range of visual content that can be included in books and other similar projects. ⇒

Digital Negatives at Project Basho in Philadelphia

posted on: January 15th, 2016

I will teaching a digital negative workshop at Project Basho in Philadelphia from January 15 through 17, 2016. The primary focus will be on using the Quadtone RIP printer driver to create easy-to-use printing profiles that will allow the user to use a single edited digital file to create digital negatives for any number of alternative photographic printing processes. Because it is a fairly straightforward process to learn, we will be creating digital negative printing profiles for palladium prints using the QTR driver. ⇒
