Alternative Photography Series by Sam Wang & Sandy King The Arts Center, Clemson, SC

Limited Space for this Intensive Workshop
Saturdays, October 13th & 27th, 9am - 5pm

A two-day intensive workshop on making cyanotypes with digital negatives. Cyanotype, or Blue Print, one of the oldest photographic processes, has been used to produce documentations of plant materials, sometimes in combination with gum-bichromate and other processes, and in producing beautiful and permanent prints on its own on watercolor papers. Students will learn about making digital negatives on transparencies with their own images to match the process requirements. These negatives will be contact printed on hand-coated watercolor paper under UV exposure, and "developed" in trays to produce positive prints.

Due to the hands-on nature, workshop enrollment is limited to 5 participants familiar with Adobe Photoshop and darkroom procedures. Bring original digital images suitable for monochromatic treatments.

Instructors Sam Wang (above; Clemson University Professor Emeritus, Art Department) and Sandy King (below) are both nationally and internationally recognized for their work in "alternative photographic processes", and are contributing authors for:
