401 Richmond St W Ste 120

$200 or $180 for G44 Members; to register visit

Participants will make their own film by coating a plate with working collodion, sensitizing it in a solution of silver nitrate, and then exposing it in a medium format camera while still wet. They will then develop, fix, wash and finally varnish the plate. Participants will leave this unique historical photography workshop with a better understanding of the wet plate collodion process using a camera. All materials are included in the workshop fee.
