Wet plate collodion is a historical technique that uses large format camera and photographic darkroom- the result of the process is a singular glass plate image created during a couple of seconds exposure, gradually appearing while developed under darkroom red light.

During this drop in session I will be using large format camera and portable darkroom to create your very own and handcrafted portraits on the glass plate. I will introduce you in short to the history of this unique process and will ask you to sit in front of my 8x10' camera that will take you back to the early days of photography. You will end up with 2 glass plates photographs that can make an amazing and unique Christmas gift!

About your host, Magda Kuca Photography

The idea of alternative workshops is to bring to the wider public -adults, children, seniors- range of workshops which aim to raise awareness about very beginnings of photography and encourage experimenting with them in most creative way. Whether experienced or not, workshops are tailored for various kinds of audience, from small groups to community engagement projects. My journey with historical processes began in 2013 and since then through experience in both education and hands on photography assignments I gained excellent skill set which includes range of photographic techniques: more experimental and complex such as wet plate collodion photographic glass plate process invented in 1856, gum bichromate, salt print, as well as those bacis and simple to use like cyanotype, anthotype or pinhole photography. For last few years I have taken part in several festivals, larger community projects and private events internationally, providing participants with a great deal of knowledge, experience and entertainment. As a workshop leader, I am currently working for community interest company Workshop 305, providing photography and printing workshop for adults with learning disabilities. In the past I have collaborate with various art institutions and galleries across London, including University of Arts London, British Museum, Four Corners Gallery, providing all sorts of unique, historical for local communities and participants of all levels of experience: adults, seniors, children and people with learning disabilities.

Notes

You can come alone or in pairs ( for the same price) to have collodion portrait taken. The glass plate, such as painting, needs to be varnished after its done- you might be able to take it home carefully for further drying or you can request to have in posted.
