Back by popular demand, the Ziatype workshop will take participants through the complete process of making Ziatypes. An alternative photographic process, Ziatypes are a variation on the platinum/palladium process but offers many advantages and is a much simpler process than platinum/palladium printing. More forgiving and easier to master, Ziatypes are often mistaken for platinum/palladium prints with rich dark tones and virtually unlimited color combinations from cool to warm.
During the course of this day-long workshop participants will take one of their images and turn it into a finished Ziatype print. (More than one print maybe made if time allows.) Expert instructor, Anne Eder, will step participants through the entire printing process, starting with making a contact negative on an inkjet printer, through coating of the light sensitive paper, to exposure with sunlight, and the final archival wash.
All materials needed will be provided, prints will be made on Hahnmühle Platinum Rag paper. Participants need to bring 3 to 4 images on a flash drive, CD, or their laptop.
