I've posted a number of classes I'm offering at Art Reactor, a community gallery/studio/workshop space in Hyattsville, Maryland that I've joined. We are targeting our classes at folks who want to get their feet wet with various alternative processes, large format cameras, or even just wet-darkroom photography.
