Penumbra Foundation in New York City is offering an amazing opportunity for those interested in immersing themselves in the wet plate process: Seven Weeks of Wet Plate with Lisa Elmaleh. Beginning on March 17th and meeting for seven consecutive Thursday evenings, this class will introduce participants to wet plate in its three forms; tintypes, ambrotypes, and glass negatives. Participants will learn how to properly coat, expose, process, and varnish their plates, build a darkroom to use in the field, modify a camera for wet plate use, and print pre-exisiting images onto plates by using an enlarger.
