Eric William Carroll Workshop Web Banner

Over the course of three days, participants will learn the cyanotype process & use it to creatively respond to our surrounding environment. Using the methods of William Bartram and the beauty of the Bartram Trail as our foundation, we will explore both cameraless and digital negative approaches and examine how research, history, and site-specificity can inform our work and even function as an unspoken collaborator.

Kaye Savage Workshop

This 3-day exploration will be an opportunity to unite your photographic practice with the materiality of place. Starting with photography, we will make unique and personal images on the Bartram trail. Next, we'll incorporate elements of the Bartram Trail landscape, including soil pigments and found plant fragments, into handmade paper. Then, we'll use photographic image transfer techniques to delight in the unique qualities of your photographs in fusion with newly crafted sheets of paper.

This workshop is open to photographers and makers of all levels. Participants will be offered the opportunity to have their photographs juried into the Listening to the Land: Reimagining the Bartram Trail community exhibition in Fall 2023.

Instructor(s): Erik Mace
$450 (Members); $525 (Non-Members)

Erik Mace Workshop 2

This onsite workshop will be an immersive primer into the world of handmade photobooks, using the Bartram Trail as our muse. With curiosity and wonder as our guide, we’ll explore a one-mile section of the trail while cultivating a joyful conversation with the land. Each participant will have the same goal: photographing with the form of a book in mind, sequencing those images, then printing and binding them into a handmade, single-edition book. As a group, we'll explore how bookmaking uniquely informs our photographic decisions. We will use this engaging three-day experience to focus on a finished object that intimately describes our own conversation with the land.

This workshop is open to photographers and makers of all levels. Participants will be offered the opportunity to have their photographs juried into the Listening to the Land: Reimagining the Bartram Trail community exhibition in Fall 2023.
