This workshop is now full – If you are interested in doing another workshop like this please contact Mike at the link below. 

Location: Platform3 Studio

Date: Tuesday July 21st

Time: 7pm

Cost: €12 per person

Wet Plate Collodion was invented by Frederick Scott Archer in the 1850’s and can be used to make photographic images on a range of substrates including Glass – the Ambrotype, or metal – the Tintype. In recent years there has been renewed interest in the process and more and more practitioners are working with this process nowadays.

Wet Plate is a difficult, slow, laborious and somewhat unpredictable process – but the upside is that it yields unique and beautiful images when all goes well!!

For this Workshop Mike will give an introduction to the process, the working methods, the chemistry, the possible substrates and then demonstrate the process using a vintage whole-plate camera [8.5 x 6.5 inches].


This is a demonstration workshop only, so participants will just observe the process for this workshop rather than working hands-on.

Mike will have some recently made plates on hand to view and there will be a general discussion on the process and its possibilities during the workshop.
