Wet Plate Collodion course at National Portrait Gallery

Wet Plate Collodion course at National Portrait Gallery

Almudena Romero will be running two one-day-workshops at National Portrait Gallery on the 10th and 11th of September.

Taking inspiration from work in the Black Chronicles exhibition, these workshops are a hands-on introduction to the nineteenth century photographic process of wet collodion.  Workshop participants will create their own tintype self portraits and will be involved in all the stages of making a plate, from setting up a large format camera and preparing the substrates to varnishing and finishing. Participants will take home a pack containing their own tintype as well as detailed information of the wet collodion process, and will be able to work independently after the workshop.

National Portrait Gallery is building an onsite darkroom for this course and participants will also be part of the launch of this new facility at National Portrait Gallery!

This course is also an opportunity for everyone who can’t afford normal wet collodion course fees.

Dates: 10th and 11th of September 2016
Fees: £150
