Advanced Alternative Processes: Projects
with Christopher James
July 1 - July 6, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

This advanced workshop is designed for visual artists whose portfolios demonstrate a comfortable working knowledge of alternative processes or who have previously attended one of Christopher’s alternative processes workshop. The workshop offers photographers a week of processes, working time, a dedicated facility, chemistry and materials with which to refine their skills and focus their energies on a specific project or technique. In recent years there has been a specific interest in wet plate collodion, gum bichromate, and platinum and palladium.

Christopher’s workshops provide a dynamic, hands-on, group experience within an energetic and supportive environment. Participants receive continual and personal assistance and immediate feedback on work in progress, along with an enthusiastic one-on-one exchange of working concepts, ideas, history, and techniques. Individual process demonstrations will be provided on request.

Using Christopher’s The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes, Second Edition as the workshop text, we are equipped to handle a wide range of processes, including: wet plate collodion, platinum / palladium, salted paper, albumen, kallitype, argyrotype, cyanotype, gum bichromate and gum combination techniques, Ziatype, and other processes and techniques that suit your needs. We also have a digital negative production setup in the facility. While most of our printing is done in the sun, UV exposure units are available.

Christopher’s workshops are a lot of fun, so come prepared to spend a creative week with a great group of artists, working in-depth on an alt process technique, project, or portfolio.

This is an ideal workshop to combine with the Wet Plate Collodion workshop, June 24–29.
