A one day workshop on Platinum/Palladium printing will be held at the Studio Art Building of the University of Delware on Saturday, November 5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
During this one-day, hands-on workshop we will begin with a discussion of the platinum/palladium printing process used in the creation of photographic images included in The Ese’Eja People of the Amazon: Connected by a Thread exhibition in the West Gallery of Old College. Participants will learn how to properly select and edit an image using Photoshop, and create and output a digital inkjet negative. Participants will then be guided through the art of the platinum/palladium printing process from applying the emulsion by hand to exposing and developing their first prints. Led by UD Art & Design Professor Jon Cox and Andrew Bale, Lecturer in Art and Art History, Dickinson College. Intended for a maximum of 10 participants.
Registration required: email@example.com. Cost $250 – Lunch and all platinum palladium materials are included. 50% deposit required to secure a place in the workshop.
Saturday, November 5, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Studio Art Building, University of Delaware

Andy tells me that most similar programs are three day projects at a cost of about $1500. That makes this a much more affordable introduction to the process for someone who is interested in exploring the concept. A basic knowledge of the processes and procedures will be the reward as well as at least two prints for your portfolio.
I will be judging the photography competition at the West Shore Camera Club on Monday, September 19th. A link to the club website is on my Learning page
