The mordancage process was initially created to apply as a film reversal process and was later named the 'Etch/bleach' process and later Mordanage Workshop participants will learn how to apply the mordancage chemistry to achieve painterly and illustrative effects including bleach/etch, veils, and redevelopment.

We will discuss chemical mixing, safety and disposal. Workshop participants will use black and white darkroom processes.  

All materials will be supplied, however attendees should bring digital image files, existing negatives, and traditionally printed silver prints for post-production treatments. A familiarity with basic darkroom techniques will be assumed but is not required. Please bring 5-10 different images to work with as there is not one right kind of image for the process we will be exploring all the possibilities applied technique with image.
