Van Dyke Photography With Laura Jackett

Van Dyke Photography With Laura Jackett In-Person

Make photographs without a camera! The possibilities are endless and well within the grasp of the beginner, while challenging for those with experience in photography. This is a great workshop with materials that are totally transportable. We will be working with Van Dyke, a historical process from the 1800s which produces a brown and white photograph on paper or cloth. Bring old black and white negatives and interestingly shaped objects to class if you have them.

You will first coat paper with Van Dyke’s special mixture of a light sensitive solution. You will make a negative by drawing on a transparency using a permanent marker, cutting out and attaching pieces of old black and white negatives, or using the copy machine to transfer a previously created image to a transparent sheet. These chemicals are extremely light sensitive so you’ll see the exposure begin as soon as you take it out to the sunlight. After exposure, develop with running water. For ages 12 and under. Recommended for ages 7-12.
