The Wet Plate Collodion Skills Workshop

A truly inspiring experience where you'll learn how to create you own original vintage photographic plate, an image made with a layer of silver exposed onto a medium such as glass or aluminium.

 

The alchemy involved is poured onto the medium and then only works whilst it’s still wet, hence the term ‘wet plate’.

 

For now, the full workshop is not available, as it is an in-person experience, but an online ‘taster’ session is available (bookings made for an in-person session can be finalised once restrictions allow).

 

2hr online taster demo session: £60
