    Hello Irish APUGers

    I'm pleased to announce plans for a 2 day darkroom workshop in Dublin on Sat and Sun 10th/11th November with Les Mclean.

    This course will be for intermediate standard and above and we hope to tackle such subjects as Flashing, Fogging, Split Grade Printing, Multi Grade Printing, Bleaching etc

    I'm just looking for expressions of interest at the moment please post or PM me.

    Venue to be agreed.

    Cost to be determined and will be the total costs of running the workshop divided by the number of participants [i.e. no profit for me :rolleyes: ]

    Class size also to be agreed.

    Having taken this same workshop with Les here in Texas, I have to say that it was outstanding!!! You will not regret this workshop!!! My printing (and my understanding of the printing process) has improved greatly.

    Any guess at cost? How much were previous ones. Obviously if I can afford it then I'm interested...

    Too many variables at the moment to give cost, sorry. Our last course was 1 day with Tim Rudman and that cost €180.

    I'm interested. Date shouldn't be a problem but might need to see what the cost is. Sounds like a good (early) Christmas present.

    The thought of Les coming down your chimney dressed as Santa, bellowing 'Ho,Ho,Ho" in Geordie is just too funny :smile:

    If you have an opportunity to attend this workshop, do it. I attended one in Texas with Les and it was amazing.

    Cheers,
    Bill

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you have the opportunity to take a Les McLean workshop, do it. What you will learn is priceless.

    Why re-invent the wheel?
