I teach 19th century printing techniques throughout the year in my beautiful renovated 1920's studio, located in my back yard in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. If interested, contact me at email@example.com, and I can give you more details and set a time that's convenient for you. These workshops are typically two full days, with one student (2 at most).

Here are some beautiful gum prints made by students in my Art Intersection gum workshop, April 9-10, 2016.
"Diana Bloomfield is such a talented Gum Bichromate photographer!
As a teacher she is clear, concise, and very giving of her time. Diana provided a personally developed perspective and approach. She is very generous in time spent with each student. Here is a wonderful workshop!"
The second image shows what Maylee created in the workshop itself, and just above that, what she's been working on at home. Check out those great notes she's keeping!
And I recently taught a gum workshop at the wonderful Light Factory, in Charlotte, North Carolina. What a terrific and very rainy weekend, thanks to Hurricane Joaquin-- but a perfect way to spend two days inside, gum printing! Such a fun group we had. Why is it that gum printers are the very best?!
