Plant Based Printing Processes II

Semester: 

Summer

Offered: 

2020

Dates: July 23 - August 13            WAITLISTED pattern created from plants and photographic process to be demonstrated in class
Days/Times: Thursdays, 6:30pm - 8:30pm (EST)
Level: Intermediate - Advanced
Instructor: Anne Eder

Course description: In this sequel to Plant Based Printing we will go deeper into processes from the first session and explore anthotype printing in 3D and on other substrates, expanded chlorophyll printing, and combining lumen and phytogram printing with cyanotype and chemigram processes.  (4 classes)

Suggested Materials List:

All processes will need a dim room to coat emulsions using low tungsten light. For lumens, best in very low light or under a red safelight.

You will need the same items you used for the intro class with a couple additions. I am sure you probably have leftovers from the intro class.

Optional additional photographic chemistry:

One cyanotype chemistry kit

---AND/OR---

Chromoskedasic chemistry kit available here: (you will need parts A and B)

Note from the instructor: These kits do very different things. If you have questions please email me at chansonette@gmail.com.

Feel free to purchase one or the other, or both. I will demonstrate use of both in combination with lumen printing. However, common household compounds such as salt, sugar, lemon juice, and other chemicals you have on hand may also be used to affect changes in texture and color. It depends on your budget and how deep into this you want to go!

Sodium thiosulphate crystals (old school photographic fixer) available here:
