UPCOMING CLASSES & WORKSHOPS!
December 3rd Workshop (Cyanotype) 4PM-6PM - In this workshop, you will learn to make a unique one-of-a-kind handmade print by coating various papers with Cyanotype chemicals and developing them in the sun. Bring found objects, plant materials or print digital negatives on acetate. Paper will be provided for the workshop, but feel free to bring your own if you'd like to experiment. You'll need to register for this class at least 2-days in advance so we can get the materials ready for you to use! A materials fee of $60 is due at or before the event.

December 8th Class (Learning Series - The Camera) 6PM-8PM - The Camera will teach you all about analog shooting. Topics covered will be: selecting a camera, camera functions, operating in that mysterious "Manual" mode, metering your subject, lens selection, and more. Pricing for this individual class is $60. This class is limited to 3 participants.

December 10th Workshop (Lumen Printing) 4PM-6PM - Lumen printing is an early photographic process developed in the 19th century. Using sunlight as developer and (mostly) organic objects as subjects, a lumen print makes a creative impression of our physical world. Come learn the fun Lumen process and discover how to apply it in your design and creative process. You will be making prints within minutes in this exciting workshop as you learn to expose and develop your works. A workshop fee of $30 is due at or before the event.
