Travel back to the mid-1800s and experience the magic in making tintypes and ambrotypes! Led by Rob Norton, this is an intensive, hands-on workshop participants will learn to make tintypes, ambrotypes, or glass negatives (all three can be done if desired). Participants will learn how to safely mix chemical formulas, pour, expose/develop their plates; through an enlarger instead of a camera!
Darkroom experience is preferred. Bring slides if you have them (negatives do not work for this process). Remember the enlarger will become your camera!
Rob Norton is a Toronto-based artist/photographer whose personal creative work embraces several art disciplines, from film and video to collage and painting. Currently, Rob is the Historical Process instructor for the Image Arts Program at Ryerson University.
