Whether you are just curious about 19th century processes or you are interested in setting up your own laboratory for experimenting with ambrotypes, tintypes and wet-collodion, this workshop will familiarize you with the chemistry, equipment and techniques for creating one of a kind images using these processes. The first half of the workshop will introduce tools and materials, as well as practical tips, and the second half will be spent working hands-on to create ambrotypes, tintypes, and maybe even a few glass plate negatives. Students will have an opportunity to create several plates over the course of the weekend using a 4x5 camera, or other large format camera, that will be available to students during the workshop.
