Using the wet plate collodion process, one of the earliest forms of photography, students in this beginner-level workshop are offered a simplified yet hands-on experience making one-of-a-kind tintypes (direct positives on an aluminum sheet) using large format, 4x5 cameras. Among other techniques, participants will learn the basics of this 19th-century process including how to pour and sensitize collodion, properly expose and develop plates, and apply a protective varnish.



All chemistry, media, and cameras will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own equipment if you have it. Please bring aprons or wear old clothing (materials are not overly toxic but can easily stain clothing). 

We will keep class sizes to a minimum.
All instructors and Participants will wear masks and maintain social distancing.
We will sanitize the space well.
