Sunday, October 15 - 9:00AM to 12:00PM
Bradley University, Heuser Art Center, darkroom
The wet plate collodion process has been experiencing a wonderful revival in recent years; more photographic plates have been made in the last eight years than in previous 160 years combined. To emphasize the unique organic qualities of the process I create photograms with stencils and multiple exposures.
This workshop will introduce 10 participants to the wet plate collodion process, emphasizing the materials in a darkroom environment, rather than in the field or studio. Basic darkroom experience is helpful, but not entirely necessary. Each participant will either make their own simple design or choose from pre-made stencils that I will provide; each participant will be able to make 2-3 8x10" designs within a 4-hour period.
Limited to 10 participants. Workshops are first come, first served. Pending on available slots, you will be given the option to register for this workshop upon registering for the conference.
