Please Note: In-Person Class Schedules are Subject to Change Due to Covid19 in 2021. Currently, we have been given the green light for hosting workshops provided all attendees have vaccination certificates and continue to wear masks. We have built an outdoor pavilion for meals. We can't guarantee the workshop dates will take place as listed if the CDC or State of Vermont imparts new rules due to a worsening of the pandemic, but we will always keep our attendees informed if anything changes.
Limited to eight attendees. This workshop will concentrate on anything new with the Piezography workflow. We will use the new Piezography drivers for Piezography printing as well as the QuadTone RIP. We will feature the latest ink sets and any that are in development. Same goes with the software. Attendees always get the latest version in progress (in addition to the release version).
Therefore, we'll be printing with both Piezography Pro inks, Piezography K7 inks and some new concoctions. Likewise, we will be working with established as well as experimental workflows.
Attendees must bring a laptop, but we provide professional grade large screen reference calibrator displays by Eizo and NEC. There is plenty of free print time, tons of one on one, and even time at the end for critiques. You should bring a series of images you wish to work with. All of the materials and fine art papers are included in the workshop costs. If you happen to have a portfolio, bring it with you. We would love to see and share.
