Join us during this open studio for participants of past Wet Plate Collodion Tintype Workshops at Art Intersection wanting dedicated time to practice tintypes under the assistance of David Emitt Adams. David will be available to answer questions and help you create your own tintypes.
Tintype plates (aluminum) for this open lab day must be purchased at Art Intersection, 4″x 5″ plates for $10 each or 8″ x 10″ plates for $25 each. These plates fit the carrier for the Art Intersection 4×5 and 8×10 cameras. Wet plate chemistry is included in the price of the metal plates.
The lab includes the use of soft box continuous lighting in the studio.
Get back in the studio and practice your skills! If you have taken a Photogravure workshop at Art Intersection or are proficient in the process, you are invited to participate in an Open Studio day dedicated to photopolymer gravure. Please note, this is not a workshop; while you are encouraged to share knowledge with your studio mates, there will be no formal instruction.
If you are not familiar with the photopolymer gravure process, learn it the day before in our workshop with Karen Hymer! Find out more and register here.
The $40 registration fee includes your access to our lab and equipment during the Open Studio. You are welcome to bring all your own materials and pay no additional fee. However, Art Intersection will have 4×5″ SolarPlates available for $8 each, paper and ink available for $5/print, and digital negatives for $5 each – this is a great option for those just starting out with photogravure, or those that don’t want to invest in their own materials yet. These additional items will be accounted for at the end of the day.
In addition to the open lab, the day will start at 9am with a Photogravure Working Group meeting. This is an opportunity to meet other photogravure printers, reconnect with friends from workshops, and share some work you’ve done already. This meeting will last no longer than an hour, but may be briefer depending on the discussion. Art Intersection hosts Working Group meetings and Open Studios on a recurring basis.
