Salted Paper Printing
with Bill Schwab
June 20-21, 2023
Photostock Workshop –
Cross Village, Michigan
Coming to Photostock2023? Why not come a couple days early and join in on a fun yet productive workshop learning the salted paper printing process?
Special thanks to the good people at Hahnemüle USA for their help in sponsoring this workshop!
Join me for a beginning class in the world of Salted Paper printing, the very first photographic printing process developed by Fox Talbot in 1839. A hand-made photographic process that involves creating a light sensitive emulsion on fine water color paper and processing it and toning it through light and chemistry.
Although the process can be a bit intimidating in all of its finer details, this course has been designed to get the novice up and running without having to delve too deeply. It gives the beginner a chance to work with the process right away without all of the trappings of collecting needed equipment, materials and chemistry. All materials and chemistry are provided including a couple of working negatives from your files, prints or negatives to get you started.
Once registered, I will work with you to get a couple of images digitized and made into negatives for printing during the workshop. You can also bring along a couple of in-camera negatives to work with if you so choose. We will work together as a group for a very full 2 days hands-on printing and you will go home at the end with some beautiful prints. And, while not yet necessarily being an expert in the process, you will have enough knowledge to get started your own from a position of experience. Consider it a fun way to get started while having a great time with the alchemy of a traditional photographic process.
As part of the class you will receive a salt printing kit, Richeson 9010 “Magic” Brush and a sample pack of Hahnemüle Platinum Rag paper that you can take home with you to get you started. ($100 value)
Class size limited to 10 with a requirement of 5, so sign up soon!
Class Fee: 300.00 (includes all materials and chemistry) Please see our refund policy before signing up.
When registered, you will receive a letter explaining the how, where, when and why of it all. We’ll be beginning on the morning of Sunday, February 25th at 9:30AM and I hope you can join us!
