    Spring Classes and Workshops
    The spring schedule for photography workshops and classes at Project Basho is finalized and posted on our website.

    www.projectbasho.org/workshops

    Project Basho is continuously expanding the rage of classes and workshops we offer for photography enthusiasts in the Philadelphia area and beyond. In addition to our beginner, intermediate, printing class, and teenage afterschool program, we now are offering a color photography class as a part of our regular program.

    Project Basho is also inviting Kerik Kouklis back to Philadelphia to offer an Intermediate Platinum/Palladium printing and a Gum over Platinum workshop in the spring. In addition to Introduction to Palladium Printing and an introductory Historical Processes, Wet Collodion and Carbon Printing Workshops will be offered in order to provide contemporary photographers with more options and resources for practicing historical processes.

    Also, Project Basho's interest is not limited to offering how-to workshops, but extends to the teaching of more elusive issues like aesthetics and developing your vision. We are inviting Diana Hooper Bloomfield to offer "Beyond the Literal", a workshop which will teach tools to make your images more personal and help you to develop your vision further. Also, we are inviting Shelby Lee Adams to offer "Environmental Portraiture" in May.

    Fundraising Print Sale

    Project Basho has been working on a 5500 sq. ft. warehouse building for the last two years. Its intention is to create a stronghold in Philadelphia to better serve photography enthusiasts in the region and beyond. In order to achieve this end, Project Basho is launching a fundraising print sale to finance the second phase of construction. This phase will add a color darkroom with a 20" processor and a 400 sq. ft. multi-purpose room. There will be a launch party on December 9, form 5 pm where a viewing of Tsuyoshi Ito's platinum/palladium prints and a silent auction for students and other contributors prints will be held.

    Hi,

    Just want to let you know that we have updated "Environmental Portraiture" by Shelby Lee Adams on our website. We are also planning to have a lecture by his which will be open to public during his stay.

    Also, his print will be in our fundraising auction this Saturday with others like Andrea Modica. Hope you will make it.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    Good luck with the sale Tsuyoshi. It is a good thing you are all doing for traditional photograhy. Wish it was closer - would love to hear SLAdams speak...have long admired his work.

    Hope all is well.

    Warmly,

    p.s.: Did you go through the palladium?

    Tsuyoshi,

    Thanks for the update Tsuyoshi. Have not gone through all of palladium, not much time for printing this year. But have managed to make a good dent in it in the last couple of months.

    Project Basho Update

    Thanks for the additional information. I think I have my wife talked into attending your silent auction print sale. I am willing to donate my photo that won the Emulsion magazine street category contest.

    I also enjoyed using your darkroom for the first time yesterday, and can recommend it to any Philadelphia area folks wanting to find a good rental facility.

    Hi everyone,

    We added One-day Gum over Pt/Pd printing workshop for those who are experienced with the process. Let us know if you are interested in attending this one day occasion with Kerik.

    Also, we have changed the date for Portfolio Case Making workshop from March to May due to instructor's request.

    If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. Thank you again for your interest in our project.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi
