I just finished teaching a two-day gum bichromate workshop at Charlotte's Light Factory and had such a wonderful time!
The class was filled with ten of the most engaged, fun, interesting, and accomplished photographers. Really energizing. I even learned the correct pronunciation of 'Quinacridone.' Thanks, Mel.
And watch this space, because I'll be adding more in the next few days.
None had ever done any gum printing prior to the workshop, and I was awed by some of the truly beautiful prints they made. By the second day, the confidence level was way up, and everyone understood the process a bit better-- both the variables and the creative possibilities that come with them.
They wow'd me with their prints. Truly.
I love the folks at the Light Factory. Kay Tuttle, the Director, and Laurie Schorr, the Education Director, do an incredible job-- and what a fantastic community of supporters they have. Such a fun weekend! I hope to do it again.
