This weekend I went to Project Basho in Philadelphia for a gum bichromate printing workshop with Scott McMahon. What a terrific experience. There was only one other student in my workshop, so we had lots of darkroom time and space, and were able to get a lot done. I came out of it with two finished prints and one partially finished print, which if you know anything about gum printing, is pretty productive for just two days.
Scott is a great instructor, very knowledgeable, very hands-on. He doesn't give you HIS "party line" about gum printing, but instead tells you "this is what works for me, other people have done this THIS way, you can try it and see if it works for you".
I'm including along with this message a scan of the two images I did at Project Basho, and a scan of the pt/pd version of the one negative for comparison purposes.
