Get back in the darkroom and improve your skills!
Jun 23, 2019 - Jun 29, 2019
Workshop Fee: $1,150
Class Size: 12
In this weeklong workshop we will consider the practical matters of working in the contemporary black and white darkroom. By exploring various papers and films, toners, developers and techniques students will discover the best materials to present their work. Students are encouraged to bring previously shot negatives that they are excited to work with but also be willing to create new images during the week.
While a major part of the week will be spent in the darkroom, we will make time to enjoy the summer beauty of the Maine coast. Bring film!
