Go back in time with this workshop and experience one of the earliest photographic printing processes. Van Dyke is a non-silver process that can be combined or used independently to create distinctive Brown toned imagery on natural materials such as silk or art papers. This hands-on workshop with Sally Ayre will teach proper coating, exposing, and developing techniques for Van Dyke.
