Event Description

We have a workshop on 12 & 13 June on  making prints on metal using asphaltum or, as Niepce called it, bitumen of Judea. 
We will treat one of the metal plates in such a way that the photograph will look like 'the first photograph' by Niepce now in the Harry Ransom Center in Austin. We may coat another plate over an aquatint and then etch and ink it to produce an image in ink on paper.

We will also make prints onto leather in the style of Thomas Wedgwood as described in his 1804 paper to the Royal Institution.
The cost of the workshop will be 250GBP. 
There are five places left.
