I have two workshops running at a non-profit art space in Brooklyn, NY. The space is gorgeous environment for shooting tintypes--- it's a 25,000 sq ft old ironworks building with enough natural light to shoot indoors, and a 1/2 acre adjacent sculpture garden. I've been teaching collodion for 2 years, beginning at 3rd Ward in Brooklyn, and also hosting shooting days in my studio and private workshops.
Details on my January and February classes are below--- I have one Intro class and two shooting days in 4x5 and 8x10. All of my classes focus on the direct-positive process on trophy aluminum. My classes emphasize the DIY nature of the process, taking about how you can build your own equipment, modify existing cameras, and get started to shoot collodion even without a background in photography. My goal is to make this process accessible and approachable.
INTRO TO TINTYPES
Saturday + Sunday, January 25th and 26th - 10am - 5pm - $275
In this hands-on workshop you will learn all the steps needed to coat, sensitize, shoot, develop and varnish a 4x5 tintype. Each plate is a one-of-a-kind positive image on blackened tin, there are no negatives or enlargements in the process. There will be 2 antique large format view cameras for shooting outdoors in natural light or indoors using UV studio lights. We will develop using portable darkboxes designed for use in-the-field, and discuss DIY methods for building your own collodion equipment. This class emphasizes the historical and DIY nature of the process, making it approachable to people of all backgrounds who may not have photography experience.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
ROBYN HASTY is an artist and educator working in sculpture, printmaking and photography. In 2009 she crashed the Venice Biennale on a handmade junk boat with 30 people. In 2011 she was commissioned to paint two murals with the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and received a grant to build 12 floating sculptures in Philadelphia with the Miss Rockaway Armada.

Within 3 months she had turned her VW into a portable darkroom and was driving across the country taking tintypes of people living off-the-grid. She teaches in a similar style, bringing bravery down to earth and making it approachable.
