This three hour workshop – offered at three different times to provide multiple options for participation – is an entry point into making phototransfers onto non-porous materials. Candace Hunter will share some of her secrets and techniques to reinventing an image to fit your imagination! This class is perfect for photographers, collage, mixed media, and fiber artists or anyone looking for a unique way to visually expand their language. Beginners welcome!
What to bring? Yourself! If you want to create a personal phototransfer, bring a photocopy* of a loved one or of yourself. *Your image MUST be a photocopy from your local copy shop, NOT a laser or ink jet print from your home office. We’ll demonstrate why in the workshop. If you’re on campus, print your image at a printing station and make a duplicate copy (or copies) on campus or at a local copy shop.
Please wear comfortable clothes and as little hand/wrist jewelry as possible. Our hands will be getting wet!
