Following on from our first London collodion wet-plate workshops taught by France Scully Osterman and Mark Osterman in 2009/2010 in Kings Cross, we are continuing our specialist lab in Kings Cross for 2012, with a selection of workshops learning to make positive ambrotypes, images direct onto glass, tin and acrylic.
Following in the footsteps of Frederick Scott Archer, the inventor of the collodion process in 1851,

practising and teaching in the UK : Jo Gane, John Brewer.
