In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to make your own ambrotypes (direct positives on glass) which you can take home with you. The artist/photographer Michael Schaaf guides you through the process; from the cleaning of the plates, the coating with collodion, sensitising, capturing a picture, developing and then finally the varnishing of the plate with historic varnishes made of gum sandarac and lavender oil.
