Take your B&W printmaking to the next level! Participants learn how to use fiber-based enlarging papers & archival processing for creating photographs that last for generations. The techniques for enhancing print quality through contrast, tone, and paper choice are explained through discussion sessions and hands-on practice with the instructor & assistant.

Friday evening session begins the orientation to papers, how to choose enlarging papers to fit the mood of the image & the darkroom/archival procedures and processes. Approximate length: 2-3 hours, Suggested time: 6:00-9:00 p.m.

The Saturday session is filled with hands-on practice with individual help, individual and group discussions, handouts, data sheets, and a lunch break. Session usually starts about 9:00 a.m., and ends up about 4:00-4:30 p.m.
