Photo Inkjet Transfer Printmaking Workshop

Using DASS ™ film and various transfer solutions, participants in this exciting two-day workshop taught by artist Barbara Ford Doyle will see how photographic transfers can be applied to various substrates — perfect for beginners who are curious about alternative photographic processes. Participants will transfer digital images to a variety of mediums including papers, “limestone” paper, oxidized aluminum, and wood panels. Registrants will email digital photos prior to the workshop to be enhanced and printed on transfer film. Barbara also can work with students on special project requests. She will offer suggestions for finishing and presenting work and provide an updated list of resources.
