Oilprinting workshop

Oilprint, along with its sister technique of bromoil are among the most beautiful manipulative processes associated with pictorial photography and the American photosecession. It is a painterly technique which, like few others,  allows for a huge level of image manipulation and thus self expression. It’s enough to say that this was the technique of choice of such masters as Gertrude Kasabier.

During the two day workshop participants will acquire all the skills necessary to start independent work with this beautiful technique. We will:

  • learn to prepare papers for oilprinting. This way we will once and for all free ourselves from the necessity to hunt down the papers suitable for bromoil printing. 
  • learn to sensitize the papers and prepare a matrix for further oilprinting.
  • finally we will learn the difficult art of inking the matrix so as to bring out and manipulate the image.
