Reception

View Finders Opening Event & Wet Plate Collodion (Tintype) Workshop

Join Artstarts for the opening reception for View Finders and a Wet Plate Collodion (Tintype) Workshop.

Wet plate collodion or tintype photography was invented in the 1850s. Participants will experience all aspects of making a tintype image using a hundred-year-old wooden camera to take a photo. The artist, Phillip Chin, will demonstrate the process of pouring, developing, fixing and varnishing plates. Participants are welcome to bring their own props and vintage costumes to take one-of-a-kind, memorable portraits.

Ages 13–100

With Phillip Chin
