Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
2013 UK WETPLATE COLLODION WORKSHOPS & DATES
Manchester workshops are held at my Manchester studio for a maximum of 4 students and cost £275. London workshops are held at Double Negative Darkroom, 178a Glyn Road, Hackney and will be taught with myself and Dr. Kate Horsley. London workshops are for a maximum of 6 students and cost £330.
I believe my workshops are the most comprehensive available in the UK and I provide full support to my students who wish to practice wetplate on their own. The workshops are held over two days and cover:
• Cameras and lenses (old and modern)
• Other equipment needed
• Chemistry, including health and safety
• Substrates: both traditional and contemporary such as glass, metal and acrylic
• Preparing, exposing, processing and finishing plates
Students will be given a 30 page workshop manual.
Students will have the chance to make positive images on glass (ambrotypes), metal (tintypes) and acrylic (acrylotypes?!) plates of different sizes using a variety of cameras and lenses.
