Carbon Transfer Printing
Instructor: Vaughn Hutchins
2024 Dates: April 17-20
Medium: Large Format Film
Designed for the curious, this workshop takes you on a journey into the lost art of what was once considered the premier photographic printing process. Rediscover the art of Carbon Printing with Vaughn Hutchins, master of the process, with Nature's grandest classroom as your muse. Learn to craft striking images with outstanding visual quality and proven archival permanence. This highly-regarded and aesthetically unique printing method is now practiced by a few dedicated artists. Now you can be one of them.
Discover the intricately rewarding practice of Carbon Transfer Printing, a complex method of producing an image with layers of carbon to create exquisite detail-rich images. Dive into what was once considered a lost art, and explore the depth of craftsmanship it takes to achieve carbon printing's enchanting effects.
Renown for their stability and long tonal range, carbon prints are considered by some to be the ultimate monochromatic photographic art form. For those who are looking to create an objet d’art as much as achieving their creative vision, this workshop is for you.
In this four-day workshop, join Vaughn Hutchins, one of the foremost carbon printing masters today, to learn to create and sensitize your materials, along with exposing and developing your prints. Vaughn can offer hands on assistance with his 8x10 View Camera allowing you to create a large format negative. This workshop will prepare you to continue the process independently, ready to develop your work at home with materials readily available.
