Workshop Overview

In this process-oriented workshop, we will explore several photo transfer techniques to transform digital and phone photographs into unique art pieces. Learn ways to transfer images to a variety of substrates that include wood, different types of paper and canvas. Create a small book of transfers and experiment with emulsion lifts. Work with images you have already taken or shoot new images while at Sitka. Each participant will leave with several transfers and a hand-bound book of their images.
