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

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.
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.
Auction is one day event, but the print sale is on-going! Anyone can place an order online! You are more than welcome too.
p.s.: Did you go through the palladium?

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.
Thank you for your comment! It would be great if we can have your print for the auction.
It was pleasure to meet you yeaterday. Hope to see you on Saturday again.

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