Papermaking & Bookmaking Workshop
I have been learning how to make tintypes, the 19th century photographic process where photographs are exposed onto sheets of metal. This is also referred to as the wet plate collodion process. The plate is prepared, exposed and processed while the photographic emulsion is wet. This image shows Andy Bloxham, my former graduate student, who is now a photography professor in West Virginia.
I will be teaching a six-session bookmaking workshop at the Masur Museum in Monroe, Louisiana on Tuesdays, March 20th - April 24, 2012, 6-8.p.m.
