Ambrotype Workshop with Claire Warden
Learn the basics of the wet plate collodion process using glass as the substrate, and create two direct positives images!
Students in this workshop, led by Claire Warden, will go through the process of cleaning glass plates, coating the plates with collodion, sensitizing, exposing, processing and varnishing the final image.
Images will be captured on 4″ x 5″ plates using a large format camera in the lab, and all materials are included to create two ambrotypes.
Recently, Claire spent a summer creating ambrotypes in Lehon, France, and she brings her wet glass plate collodion experience to this workshop.
The Friday preceding the workshop, Claire will give a free to the public lecture about ambrotypes and her experience in Lehon.
On Sunday, following the Saturday workshop, Claire will be on-hand in the lab to assist with the anyone wishing to make additional glass plate images.
