Lith Printing Workshop

Translight Photography Center is hosting a Lith Printing workshop next month. I'm a sucker for these processes so thought I tend to post about these. In an age of digital, this could be an excellent way to differentiate oneself:

Instructor: Francesca di Leo
Dates/Times: MARCH 7th, 14th, 21th, & 28th 2010
Sundays 11am-3:00pm (14hrs total),
Workshop Fee: $225 + $160 lab fee
Enrollment Limit: 10

Lith printing is a process that uses a lithographic two part developer in a very dilute solution to obtain color and texture from a black and white paper. Different papers have different qualities in Lith printing, ranging in color from warm sepias to salmon and even olive tones. Other papers have very little color shift, achieving beautiful textures instead, giving the print a texturally graphic quality.

In this four week workshop, students will explore the world of Lith printing and a whole new way to express themselves artistically. Attendees will learn how to “expose for the highlights and develop for the shadows”, which is the basic principle in Lith printing. All students who attend this class should have a basic knowledge of traditional black in white printing.

A non-refundable deposit of $100 is required in order to reserve a space in the workshop. The balance is due on the first class session.
