That is very nice work indeed. Thanks for the link. In a similar vein, does anyone in the UK offer workshops in Gum? I contacted the only person I know in the UK - Terry King - but he is far too expensive. Two days for 600 bucks and 1,000 dollars for 5 days. Too rich for my blood. It could be that it's a differant process though. He calls it Gum Rex now...Anyway I would love to visit with a Gum worker in the UK, just to see how they work.
Is that true about Gum Rex, or was that tongue in cheek?

I don't know if either of these guys are doing workshops, but there's John Brewer, at


and Julian Smart. I can't find a website for him, but he has a page on alternativephotography. I don't have time to search and see if they have contact information for the artist there.


That would be at least a couple of people to talk to. Good luck,

Also, here's his website, with examples of his gum work:
