"To learn a new technique, especially one as intimidating as wet plate, in one weekend for an affordable price - and to walk away feeling confident enough to try it on my own is pretty incredible! I'm so thankful I took this course - it revived my love of analog, hands-on photo processes and empowered me to carry on!" - Becky Harlan, February 2017

In this workshop, Sam will teach students how to create glass negatives, tintypes and ambrotypes in camera. Students will learn the techniques of preparing the plate, pouring collodion, exposing, developing, fixing and varnishing as well as chemical mixing and safety. The cameras, chemicals and materials will be supplied.
