Making Tintypes (Register by August 6)

August 13, 2019 - August 14, 2019

2 Days

Tuesday - Wednesday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Taught by Ron Cowie

This two day workshop is a fun introduction to wet plate photography, one of the most exciting of the antique processes in the fine art world. It was made famous by such master photographers such as Fenton, Brady, and more recently Sally Mann. Learning wet plate is a contemplative journey of creative expression which allows the artist the hands on experience of a painter or sculptor. Looking for a thoughtful way to reconnect to your voice as an artist? Be a part of the recent revival in alternative processes! We will focus on the still life for our subject matter.

Please be aware that this process can stain clothing, so dress accordingly.
