Printing workshops in Weybridge, Surrey, with Rachael Talibart and Adrian Beasley.
COVID-19: Please note that due to the current health crisis, we are running our classroom workshops with extra space. The new room is spacious and airy with space for social distancing between all attendees. The printing will take place in our old classroom, thus ensuring that there are no ‘pinch points’. The bathroom facilities are equipped with paper towels, wipes and copious amounts of soap and there will be antibacterial gel available throughout. We will ask that you bring a mask but, if you don’t have one, you will be able to buy one for a nominal fee. We will also email all participants 24 hours before the workshop to ask that they confirm they are symptom free. Lunch will be provided in separate containers and eaten either in the garden, if the weather allows, or in the printing room with its row of bi-fold doors that can be opened. Please feel free to email us for more information: email@example.com.
There is nothing quite as satisfying as holding one of your own prints made on a beautiful, heavy, art paper. Many photographers consider the print as the final, and most rewarding, step in the photography process but it is a step so often lacking in our modern world. Recently, there has been a resurgence in printing as photographers re-connect with the beauty of the physical form. However, printing your work to a professional standard takes a little more than pressing the print button!
Two-day printing workshop
This hands-on printing workshop will help you to understand the technical aspects of producing a high quality photographic print. We will delve into the essential details of your setup, colour management and developing techniques, then look at the many printing options before sending your images to the printer.
The workshop is designed with plenty of time for you to practise what you have learned using your own images. Adrian and Rachael are enthusiastic and experienced printers and you will receive their one-to-one attention throughout the workshop. With a professional pigment ink printer at your disposal and a wide range of art papers, you can experiment with different approaches to editing and printing.
This workshop is ideal for those who own a printer, are looking to buy a printer, have had problems sending images out for print or those who simply want to spend a couple of days creating beautiful prints with professional support. The workshop is full of practical advice so that, if you wish to, you may continue to print with confidence at home.
Advanced printing 'add-on' workshop
This workshop is only for graduates of our two-day printing workshop or our two-day black and white editing and printing workshop. During the day we will have the opportunity to iron out any issues that may have arisen with your printing in the period since the two-day workshop. The main focus of the day, however, will be editing and printing more pictures from your portfolio. As before, we will have a range of fine art papers for you to choose and the same exciting atmosphere as your prints start to spread around the room.
For both workshops, you will need to bring your laptop with a selection of images to work on. You can use almost any editor but some have limited printing capabilities, so we recommend Lightroom, Photoshop, Affinity or Capture One. If you have something else, we can help you get the best from whatever you are using and show you the features and benefits of professional editors.
