Platinum and Palladium prints are considered the zenith of alternative process printing. Two of the most precious metals on earth combine to produce images of gorgeous tonal value. This class will give you the knowledge and confidence to start making Pt/Pd prints in your own home.

Classes will start with a history and explanation of the process followed by safety and environmental considerations. Time will be given to make prints during class, ask questions and experiment.
