And finally, here is the Syllabus with more information.
Any questions, please contact me. Thanks to moms and Agx for helping me to clarify what this workshop is about.
Pass the word along...
I hope cash arrives in time for this.
I don't think I understand this either, shouldn't this be posted on DPUG?
Stone, isn't this perfect for you? Develop film, no darkroom?
Painters like Hopper, Jamie Wyeth and others found inspiration on Monhegan. From a photography perspective, George Tice has done wonderful work there.
I just thought Stone was being sarcastic....
Anyway, thanks Michael. I go back to the island every year now that my brother, an artist, has a place there. Great variety of locations and ever changing conditions on that small island 10 miles out to sea!
We are converting the first floor of his house from a store to a studio/gallery this spring. No darkroom but it should be a great place to work out of with lots of work space. I'm going to leave the agenda flexible to take advantage of the best outdoor conditions, while spending the rest of the time working in the studio-- discussing, developing, scanning and printing.
We'll be developing with caffenol, pyrocat and maybe Rodinal. Beside developing, I'll have a scanner, an inkjet printer and we'll use the sun for a uv light source with van dykes. We may even produce a digital negative or two if we have the time.
I will have medium and large format cameras and film, as well as pinhole cameras at both sizes.

Haha, well, Maine is really quite beautiful. But I can go there on my own, and this particular setup wouldn't really help me at all, as that's what I normally do, develop my own in a Paterson, and I send my scanned images to a printer to have them light-jet printed, not ink jet...

Sounds like a fun weekend but I would do it more because it would be fun to shoot WITH other photographers but I couldn't afford it at that price and I don't see what I personally would gain from it since I do all that in my kitchen normally.
I'm sure for someone just starting out this would be a great learning experience.
The alternative process people using film negatives and the sun are pretty analogue.

Seriously? If someone shoots and develops film, but they don't make prints with an enlarger, they're not welcome here on APUG?
Wow! That eliminates most of today's best film photographers out there...most use hybrid techniques to some extent.
Also, I post this here on APUG knowing that many who will read it are at a level where they don't <need> this workshop. But maybe some do, and others could pass it along to someone they know who has been interested in film but hasn't taken the plunge or has only dipped their toes in the water. Either way, it is a chance to promote film photography and to work with others in a beautiful place far from the distractions of the "real" world.
I'm pretty excited about how good this workshop will be. Since I'm limiting it to 5 attendees, and my expenses are significant to do it on the island, I actually won't be making a lot of money doing this. It will be a small group in an extraordinary location for a reasonable amount of money.
I'm a bit surprised and saddened about all the negativity here in this forum so far... if you're not interested, that's fine, but I'm doing this because I love doing it and now I have the opportunity...
