John Brewer will be continuing his monthly wet plate collodion workshops at Double Negative Darkroom from Feb-Oct 2015. The workshops are held over two days at our Hackney based analogue photographic space. These intimate workshops have a maximum of 6 students and all materials are included.
Students will have a chance to make plates on glass (ambrotypes) and metal (tintypes) and plates of different sizes using a variety of modern and traditional (antique) cameras and lenses. Students will also receive a copy of John’s invaluable course booklet which gives detailed information on chemistry, process, equipment and materials.
