Workshop on colour Gum Dichromate (3 Color) Print:  

5th to 7th December 2021

INTRODUCTION ​

Gum print is a contact printing process in which the image is formed on a coating of sensitized gum containing pigment. Exposure to UV light makes it insoluble to water hence when the exposed paper is developed in water the pigmented shadows remain while the highlights are washed clean.

The gum print process can be made to yield prints of great beauty.  Gum print has a distinctive character of its own. for an overview, one can visit www.alternativephotography.com  and here. 

​ Our Approach:

The medium is one of the earliest processes for photography printmaking. This historical method is versatile in nature and could be manipulated according to the artist’s need. Other than photographic images there are possibilities of printing from handmade negatives, photograms extra. Hence the workshop is not only for those artists who work with cameras but it's open for all artists who are interested to work with Light sensitive pigmented gum on paper.

The studio is equipped with all the facilities where one can print multi-colour full imperial size print.

Workshop on Ambrotype:  

12th to 14th November 2021

INTRODUCTION 

 

A glass plate is coated with salted collodion and dipped inside a silver nitrate chamber for 3 minutes thus the plate became sensitive to light. The plate is exposed inside a plate camera and developed. This is how a positive image is produced. The positive image is seen against a black/dark paper, cloth etc.

Tintype is a variant of the collodion process; devised by Frederick Scott Archer in collaboration with Peter W.Fry in 1851. Mainly used for portraiture as a cheap substitute for Daguerreotype.

For more details about the process please click here.

A film on Ambrotype: “A Quiet Riot” (A Quiet Riot - the ambrotypes of Eric Antoine, brings you an intimate view of the French photographer's wet collodion photography.)

Our Approach:

The medium is one of the earliest processes for photography invented in 1851. This historical method is versatile in nature and can be manipulated according to the artist’s needs. The workshop is open for photographers, historians, artists, curators or anyone interested to learn this almost 164 years old process related to photography. No experience is necessary for this unique workshop.

 

The studio is equipped with all the facilities where one can make Tintype/ ambrotype using at least three different size cameras.

 

Maximum number of participants: 03

The workshop covers:

  • Introduction to wet plate collodion photography.

  • Preparing the salted collodion, silver nitrate bath etc.

  • Preparing Glass plate for making photographs,

  • Hand tinting Ambrotype with colours.

  • Varnishing Ambrotype.

 

What you will learn during the workshop:

 

  • How to make wet plate collodion positive images( Ambrotype).

  • How to make collodion, Silver Bath and other related processes.

  • How to use Plate camera

  • How to tint collodion images with colour.

 

All the participants will be provided with:

Introduction:

 

Silver and gold particles formed images on paper in a matrix of egg white is called Albumen prints.  The process was invented in 1847 and became the most important medium of the photographic printing process. Such prints constitute by far the largest category of objects in 19th-century photographic collections. Albumen paper became the most widely used photographic printing material about 1855, and remained so until 1895; it did not disappear completely from photographic practice until the 1920s.

Our Approach:

The albumen printing process is a contact print process. Earlier it's been printed from a glass plate negative of the same size. Later when the size of the negative became smaller in size and the printing process shifted to silver gelatin by using an enlarger.  

In this workshop, we will make a digital negative from digital images and produce a large size negative to print. We will learn how to make albumen paper from egg white, how to make it sensitive to print and how to process it with gold salt.  We will also discuss the aesthetic of albumen print and contemporary digital inkjet print.  

Maximum number of participants: 08

 

The workshop covers:

 

  • Introduction to the history of Albumen Print.

  • Preparing Digital Negative.

  • Preparing salted Albumen solution from egg white 

  • Preparing Albumen Paper

  • Preparing printing frame,

  • printing the Albumen paper.

  • Making Gold tonner

  • Colouring albumen print with gold solutions. 

 

 What you will learn during the workshop

 

  • How to make Digital Negative for Albumen Print

  • how to make Albumen Paper

  • How to process it

  • How to print Albumen Paper with silver Salt.

  • The various formula of Albumen print

Wet Plate collodion Negative & Albumen Print 
18th to 22nd November 2021

 

INTRODUCTION 

 

A glass plate is coated with salted collodion and dipped inside a silver nitrate chamber for 5 minutes to make the plate sensitive to light. The plate is exposed inside a plate camera and developed in the darkroom. This is how a negative image is produced on a glass plate. If necessary the negative is then intensified by the various intensification processes to be able to make prints using albumen or salt print process.
