Van Dyke Photography Workshop

August 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

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, which produces a brown
and white photograph on paper or cloth. Bring old black and white negatives and interestingly
shaped objects to class.
Just like Cyanotype, you will first coat paper or cloth with Van Dyke’s special mixture of light
sensitive chemicals. 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.
