ADVANCED PRINTING TECHNIQUES FOR THE BLACK & WHITE DARKROOM- fibre based hand printing & toning
In this hands-on darkroom class students with some familiarity of darkroom practice will learn how to print archivally using fibre-based paper and toning. Students will have the opportunity to print and compare a variety of different paper types, such as textured, gloss and matt finishes. This is a rare and affordable opportunity to try a range of paper finishes with different aesthetic outcomes. The materiality and process of hand printing is elemental to darkroom practice. How paper finishes can be used to enhance conceptual concerns will be discussed in addition to presentation options for fibre printing. Participants should have intermediate darkroom printing skills and are required to bring 35mm negatives to work with.
