    Second GEH Workshop on Emulsion Making and Coating

    APUG members, I am happy to announce the tentative plans for a second workshop using the description here: http://www.eastmanhouse.org/events/s...hoto-workshops in which we will make an Azo type emulsion in 3 contrast grades. We will coat using a number of paper surfaces.

    This workshop is scheduled to take place in September and is by subscription in advance. At the present time, the time period between the 12th to 15 of Sept. appears to have a conflict but any Monday - Wed of the remaining weeks are open.

    We considered 3 and 4 day workshops and different subjects, but due to current response and cost structure, the 3 day workshop for this topic appears to be best at this time.

    We solicit your advance contacts with preferred dates so that we can select the most popular date in Sept. Please contact Mark Osterman (Mosterman at geh.org (replace the "at" in his address with @)) to register your preference and desire to attend. An exact date will be published as soon as we can get the proper number of registrants with overlapping schedules.

    This course will include all of the extras the other course did, along with possible visits by other retired photo engineers or scientists from Kodak.

    Back by popular demand! Congrats Ron

    Having attended the premiere of this workshop series, I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the art and science of emulsion-making.

    I'm in. I sent Mark my throughts on what I would like and spoke with him on the phone (how 20th century ) . Besides, September is a much niser time to visit Rochester.

    With a smaller group (2 to4) I'm guessing the tutition to be closer to $1K per person, but for the quality of instruction and information we get I think it's worth it. Ian, I believe you would agree. Personally, I like smaller groups.

    However, if GEH wants a larger group, we need to find poeple to fill out the class to six or eight.

    Joe;

    Just remember that this course is a repeat of the one just finished so we can get in those who missed out on it. Your endorsements of the course have let others see what they are getting. But, there is a price limit that must be set. For example, the course could be 4 days or as you say, we could have 4 students, but that might keep some people from attending. I think that the current price/# of students/length is about right. We finished up with no real problems and got everything in. Those that wanted to stayed an extra day and toured the facilities and closed areas of GEH (by appointment) and got to see some amazing things like original color Lippman plates by Lippman himself!

    We are working on that as well Joe. It will probably be a 4 day course due to the subject matter.

    Thanks.

    The workshop is now up on the GEH schedule and it starts October 3, 2011. It will run 3 days.

    http://www.eastmanhouse.org/events/d...rkshop-16-2011.

    It will be a repeat of the February workshop, back by popular demand! We will have guests, former EK engineers, who will join us as their schedule permits. At least 4 have said that they were willing to sit in on the workshop as some of them did at the first one, and they may even answer questions in free time or over lunch. This will be something you will remember forever.
