"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!"

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?!
