Instructions & More Info

Workshop Syllabus

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.

Compatibility Notes

If you are looking for information before you buy Piezography, this workshop is right for you. If you are a seasoned user wishing to squeeze more out of your image preparation and printing technique, it is also right for you. If you are a technician or lab assistant with the responsibility of printing for others, it is also the correct workshop.

If you have no experience whatsoever in digital imaging and hoping to learn Photoshop, then this workshop may not be compatible with you. In this case we recommend a private workshop tailored specifically to your needs or Piezography for Beginners Workshop.

If you are seeking to use this time to print a portfolio or an exhibition, this workshop is not compatible with you. In this case we recommend a private workshop at Cone Editions Press.
