PCNW is offering a unique opportunity to create daguerreotypes in an intensive workshop. Learn how to polish, sensitize, and develop plates using specialized equipment in a private studio setting. Students will leave the class with one or two finished and sealed quarter plate daguerreotypes and a basic understanding of the process invented by Louis Daguerre in 1839. Don't miss this extremely rare chance to create your very own "mirror with a memory". Enrollment is limited to 6 participants.
