Our instructor Jill Enfield has written 3 books about historical photo processes and is regarded as one of America’s most experienced and respected alternative process artists.

The workshop will cover the entire process from cutting and preparing glass & aluminum, mixing and handling chemicals, safety procedures, making portable darkrooms, assessment of exposure time, evaluation of results, and all that goes into mastering the wet plate collodion process.

Cyanotype and Van Dyke Brow is different printing processes involving mixing chemicals, preparing the canvas, printing, processing and drying.

Jill will give a lecture in how you prepare a digital negative to use in an alternative process. This way you can use any digital image you already have taken, and turn it into a wet plate collodion photograph, a Cyanotype or Van Dyke Brown print. 

This class is open to all levels. You need no prior experience in Alternative Process to join this class. The workshop is also open for participants who have experience in Wet Plate Collodion Process, Cyanotype and/ or Van Dyke Brown, and wants to join us for a week to practise their skills, with Jill as their mentor.
