Greetings ~ Will Dunniway here. I am new to the APUG Forum, but not to
the art of wet plate collodion. I have been practicing in this craft since
1990 and just recently have begun to teach this skill in wet plate
collodion workshops across the country. The workshops in Corona are for
2 days and the New York and Montana workshops, 4 days. I know there a
lot of teachers these days, but thought maybe some of you might be
interested in what I have to teach given almost 18 years in the field
working with this wet plate collodion process. For inquiries email me at:, or go to my web site. http://www.collodion- for more information.
On my web page, the workshop schedule is being revised. The following
is the latest. Thanks, and just maybe I will be hearing from a few of

The basic course description:

Students will learn the making of ambrotypes (glass direct positives) and
tintypes. (Ferrotypes, tin plate direct positives) Students are guided
through the process step-by-step from the mixing, pouring, exposing
and development of plates poured with wet collodion. The newest edition
now is 4 color of the manual, Making the Wet Collodion Plate in 16 Steps
manual by Will Dunniway is included along with all materials in the course
fee. Students will use a period 1860 field camera with 1860-70 lenses.
Workshop features 2 days of intensive hands-on training in the making of
ambrotypes, ferrotypes (tintypes), and glass plate negatives. Each student
will make and take home a self-portrait/still life tintype/ambrotypes. All
materials and equipment provided.

The 4 day workshops include a day shooting with a Brownie type box
camera that you keep. Intensifying glass negatives and printing from
these negatives with salt paper.
