Tentative Schedule, May 11, 12, 13th
Mat is going to give us two carbon printing demonstrations. One Friday evening and a second Saturday afternoon. This is to accomadate the number of people coming to the event, late arrivals and the limited space in my darkroom,
Friday: Meet here as early as 5 PM or when ever you come to town
Mat will sensitize the carbon. This needs to dry so the second part of the demo will start about 8 PM and go to 10 PM. During the drying period 6-8 PM, I suggest we have pizza dinner at the Powers’ place. Then look at prints. The dark room is available if anyone needs to load film holders or has a camera emergency.
A good pizza source is: Teressa’s Pizza 4174 Wheatly Rd. Richfield, OH - 330-659-9555. Please bring your own pizza and beverage. For those coming in on the Turnpike, we are exit 173. Terresa’s takes 15-20 minutes to produce pizza depending on the crowd. You might call ahead and pick up your pizza on the way in. Teressa is in the little shopping area at Wheatley and Brecksville Rd.
9AM Saturday meet at our house and see who is going where. The Fry Farm Museum is 1.4 miles NW on Southern Rd. I will take a group there and show you around. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park is two miles east of us. There are three waterfalls within five miles. Lee L has kindly built and maintained a Google Mapbook with most of our previously visited locations. https://sites.google.com/site/neohapug/ I will have paper maps put out by the Cuyahoga Valley National Park CNVP. We can help you find things if needed.
4 PM Saturday Mat will start sensitizing carbon for demo #2. He expects this demo to continue to 7 PM. He will also be making an albumen print from Charlie’s new wet plate camera.
7 PM Saturday we will go to Musketeers Bar & Grille, 3027 Brecksville Rd, Richfield, OH. Tel: 330-659-4111. Leave our house going east toward Brecksville Rd. Turn left at the stop light. Musketeers is less than a mile on the right.
After dinner return to the house to look at prints.
Sunday morning shoot early or sleep in. 10 AM meet for a group brunch at Richfield Family Restaurant 4793 Brecksville Rd, Richfield, OH 44286 tel:330-659-9862.
