Explore the elegant process and subtle beauty of albumen.
There are no available registration dates at this time.
Join printmaker Brenton Hamilton for a week long investigation of the elegant albumen process in our historic process lab. We will work with the albumen techniques and formulas from the 19th century and use egg albumen and silver and gold toners to make prints of subtle beauty. You will learn how to prepare albumen emulsions and apply it to paper and how to handle the intricacies of this demanding and elegant process.
A short materials list for students will be provided and we will make appropriate digital negatives of your work here in the lab.
