    Wet Plate Collodion Photography: Tintypes to Ambrotypes
    Craig J. Barber
    June 21-25 at Peters Valley School of Craft
    The Wet Plate Collodion photographic process is a beautiful way to create handmade photographs unlike any other. This intensive, hands-on workshop is an excellent opportunity to learn this process. The workshop is designed so you will leave with a solid understanding of the Wet Plate Collodion process, thereby enabling you to continue when you return home. You will learn to make both tintypes photographic plates (direct positives on metal) and ambrotypes (direct positives on glass plates). In addition to learning how to pour, expose and develop your plates, you will also learn how to mix the necessary chemical formulas, where to purchase your supplies, and how to set up your own studio. Each student will also receive a "How-to" Handbook.
