Bob Carnie/ Gum Bichromate

December 27-30 2017

1840 Danforth Avenue, Toronto

This workshop is aimed at those people who have a desire to learn in a welcoming atmosphere how to make wonderful permanent prints and have:

-Taken a workshop with us before

-Can show that they exhibit the right knowledge base to not slow down the other printers.

The goal of this workshop will be to make a series of 15×20 prints on paper that are multiple layered images, Gum over Palladium, Duotone Gum, or Tri Tone Gum Bichromate. Your choice of process and look rather than teacher directed.

We will stay with this image size to maximize workflow for the course of four days. This size is a traditional aspect ratio for portfolio prints.

The hours of this workshop are from 8 am – 5 :30pm each day with group dinners considered after each long day.

We know that through exhaustive research on print permanence that the noble             metals of platinum palladium will not fade, in fact the paper will decompose before the metal will go away. Platinum palladium and gum over palladium have the look, texture and feeling of work done in the very beginning of photographic printmaking. Contemporary prints cannot give us the colour palette and physical sense that these two processes offer. In both cases the paper is Hahnemühle Platinum. The noble metal of platinum palladium sinks into the very fabric of this paper and any resulting pigment is layered on top for an exquisite image.
