All kinds of workshops! Since the artist side is strong over here, we also embrace the darkroom and alternative processes. What are alternative processes? I'm glad that you asked... They're all different and fun ways to print your photography. Nineteenth century printing processes. They range from water color to palladium silver and everything in between.
Since art and photography are my passion, combined with years of teaching that I simply can't let go of, I want to share my love of funky, different, historical processes and all things photography. This means one day I can be teaching "How to shoot on manual" to a group of people who want to learn how to take their camera off of AUTO (which includes walking INTO a camera obscura so you truly see what each thing does to the camera....it's fascinating).... and then next day might be a day of pure alchemy with all kinds of chemistry. It means you're never too "new" or too "seasoned" to come play at our studio for a workshop!
Here are the workshops that we have coming up! If there's not a sign up link yet, just wait, there will be one once the time gets nearer!

one of our most popular workshops since we also incorporate the use of a camera obscura! Learn to TRULY know how to problem solve shooting with your camera....

May 19, 2019 (Sunday) CREATE WITH THE KALLITYPE PROCESS
This is another class that will be taught for a Super 1 Day class for PPA. We will be creating art with the Kallitype process which is a silver, platinum process. You'll simply need to bring a thumb drive (or email me or text me) with a few photos on it. We will turn them into digital negatives and then create one of a kind silver prints! There will be other processes taught in this workshop that go hand in hand with the 19th printing process theme. We will begin with cyanotypes and then move into Kallitypes...
Again, since this is a Super 1 day through PPA, you'll need to click on the link below and register through PPA! (Find the CREATE WITH KALLITYPE class being taught by me, Robin Thompson, and register there!
