    I will be giving a week-end workshop in Carbon Printing at PhotoCentral on September 18&19, 2010.

    Participants will get hands-on experience with the entire process -- a beautiful and very permanent process that can yield prints with a unique raised relief. This is a great way to try a fantastic process, and prepare the way to make carbon prints at home.

    The workshop will not be available for registration until August via this website:

    http://www.photocentral.org/shows.html

    Opening at PhotoCentral this week-end (6-12-10) will be a show containing over a dozen of my carbon prints (as well as some platinum prints) -- as well as alt prints by Kate Jordahl, Brian Taylor, and the Foothill College alt photo class.

    If you have any questions, please contact me at vgh7001@humboldt.edu

    Thank you.

    Vaughn, this was the class that started it all for me. Good luck and if anyone wants to get serious about carbon do not miss this.

    Thanks, Sandy.

    Jim -- this will actually be a week-end of only carbon printing, instead of the van Dyke/cyanotype/carbon combo you came to! Should be lots of fun!

    I've been reading about carbon printing alot lately, and I'd love to learn, but I can't quite drive across the country to do so. You wouldn't happen to want to visit the Chicago area any time soon, would you? :D

    No cross-country trips planned. But if you decide to jump into it just let me know and I'll be glad to help in any way I can. Also check the website that Sandy started (see the link in his post above) and also the Carbon Site at http://bostick-sullivan.invisionzone.com/index.php

    Sandy is on the East Coast and is an excellent instructor in carbon printing, so you might contact him about his workshop schedule.

    It is not just a process, it is an adventure! :wink:
