Course Description

Photography is a medium that is constantly evolving, presenting new ways to combine hardware, materials, and methods. Join Dan for a trip into an alternate universe of archival inkjet printing, a technology that can reproduce the look, feel, and intrigue of handmade prints—both monochrome and color—without the expense and hassle of a wet darkroom.

Over five days, we explore the beauty of translucent papers and discover ways to blend gold, silver, palladium, and other metals. As brushing, grinding, and rubbing become your new go-to skills, you also experience the joys of hand-applying gesso to make highlights positively glow.

Field trips to visually rich locations allow participants to make images using their newly minted skills. Back in The Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab, we then master the easy but powerful Adobe Photoshop techniques necessary for fine-tuning images. Dan shares his “diagnose and treat” approach to troubleshooting, saving you time, paper, and disappointment as you learn to identify problems before hitting the “print” button.

Dive into the magical world of voluptuous papers, hand-applied gold leaf, palladium leaf, mica powders, archival varnish, and opaque gesso, while creating lasting works of art that you’re proud to display, share, and sell.
