Carbon Printing

In my one-to-one carbon transfer printing workshops you will learn how to make tissue, and sensitise it, expose negatives, transfer the tissue to the final support, develop, and clear prints. I will show you a sizing technique, which is essential when using uncoated cotton rag paper as a final support.

I prefer to make prints from large format negatives, which are optimal for the carbon transfer process. If you do not have large format negatives they will be provided. Or, if you wish, we can make some using my 8 x 10 Deardorff!
