About the Event

This one-day workshop will introduce participants to the Van Dyck Brown process - an easy, inexpensive and versatile process that produces beautiful sepia prints with a long tonal range.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to coat art paper with light-sensitive chemicals, before exposing it to light and processing to make your own Van Dyck Brown prints.

The workshop covers the basics of the process, including:

  • Paper choice and preparation
  • Mixing and storing the VDB solution
  • Coating, exposing and processing paper
  • Finishing your prints

What to bring

All materials will be provided. We prepare digital negatives for you before the workshop, so you will need to email us a selection of high resolution digital images one week before the workshop, and you can also bring flat objects like leaves, feathers etc if you'd like to make photograms.

  • Introduction to VDB
