In a time when the immediacy of digital photography has created a flood of expendable images, many artists have chosen to turn to traditional image making techniques. In this one day workshop, students will learn the history and basic practice of the 19th Century tintype process. In this hands-on class, attendees will learn to coat, sensitize, expose, develop and varnish aluminium plates to create one-of-a kind hand-made photographs. Students will finish the day with several tintypes created by their own hands and will receive a detailed handbook containing all the information they need to continue making tintypes on their own.
