Workshops Update

Some visitors to this blog may not be aware that I teach workshops in large format technique and platinum/palladium printing. For those interested in the classic platinum process and who live in the vicinity of northern Florida the following may be of interest.

I’m in the early stages of a plan to offer a group workshop at facilities of Daytona Beach State College in Florida, next April. The weekend workshop will take students through the entire process: we’ll make new pictures using large format film, develop the film correctly for the Pt/Pd process, prepare hand-coated platinum/palladium paper and produce Pt/Pd prints. That’s on Saturday. On Sunday participants will get to practice preparing and printing platinum materials. Everyone should end the workshop familiar enough with the process to continue working and practicing on their own. For more details follow this link to my web site Workshops Page.

Also, if you'd like the newly formed CW Traveling Platinum Workshop Road Show to come to a suitable facility near you, please let me know.

...An unsolicited recommendation...I have taken two 1-day workshops with Carl and I highly recommend them. You will work harder and learn more than any workshop you have taken. Not only will you have the skills to make Pt/pd prints, you will have the tools you need to experiment with papers/chemicals to form your own personal approach. And the support that Carl gives after the workshop is over is simply the best. You will have a lot of fun as well. ....

Lyle, thanks for the plug.

Martin, why not both?? I'd love to give a workshop in Stuttgart (though I shudder to contemplate the logistics).
