I have been approached by a number of people who have shown interest in half day workshops that would provide an introduction to Alternative Photographic Printing Techniques. I currently teach a similar course/workshop to universities and colleges.

The half day workshop will provide those people who have an interest in Alternative Photographic Printing Techniques an introduction to a range of processes including Cyanotype, Kalitype, Platinum/Palladium, Polymer Photogravure and Wet Plate Collodion. Demonstrations of a number of processes will be provided on the day and each participant will leave with print examples of two of the printing processes. The half day workshop also provides an opportunity to meet other people interested in alternative techniques as well as peruse more than 400 books on photography.

Topics covered on the workshop include:

Alternative Photographic Printing Techniques in the 21st Century
Common Equipment needed for Alternative Photographic printing techniques
Methods of creating contact printing negatives
Health and safety of Alternative Photographic Printing Techniques.
Introduction to Cyanotype, Kalitype, Platinum/Palladium, Photogravure and Wet Plate Collodion techniques.
Demonstrations of Cyanotype and Platinum/Palladium printing processes.
