Wetplate collodion workshops are held over two days at my studio in Manchester. Workshops are for a maximum of four people. The workshops cover:

• Cameras and lenses (old and modern)
• Other equipment needed
• Chemistry, including health and safety
• Substrates: both traditional and contemporary such as glass, metal and acrylic
• Preparing, exposing, processing and finishing plates

You will be given a 30 page workshop manual.

Students will have the chance to make positive images on glass (ambrotypes), metal (tintypes) and acrylic (acrylotypes?!) plates of different sizes using a variety of cameras and lenses.

Contact me for current workshop fees here.

I can also tailor workshops to your individual needs and am happy to travel throughout the UK. Please contact me with your requirements here.

I supply collodion kits to students at a 10% discount.

There are several hotels in Manchester at varying prices and this one is close to my studio. I can pick up and drop off students from Manchester Airport, Piccadilly Railway Station and hotels. On street parking is available outside the studio during weekends.

The workshops start at 10am and finish at 5pm but I am happy to carry on later. 

I have taught over 200 students worldwide from the USA to Europe. Blogs from previous students:
