Learn to use the beautiful and magical tintype process, one of the oldest photographic mediums. This course is a one-day workshop taught by Cynthia Gemus, where participants will learn how to pour, sensitise, expose, develop and varnish plates in a hands-on environment.
‘In this one-day tintype workshop participants will learn the history and basic practice of the 19th Century tintype process. By the end of the day the participants will have gained knowledge on how to pour, sensitise, expose, develop and varnish plates.
Each participant will complete the day with several tintypes created by their own hands. Students will receive a detailed handbook containing all the information they need to go on making tintypes on their own (materials, chemicals, recipes, techniques, troubleshooting, suppliers etc.)’
