    Wet Plate Collodion Workshop, Penland, NC July 7-19, 2013

    I am happy to announce I will be teaching a Wet Plate Collodion Workshop this summer at the Penland School of Arts and Crafts, July 7-19, 2013. The class will deal with the Wet Plate Collodion Positive where we will be making Ambrotypes, Tintypes, and Alumitypes. The class will cover from start to finish the Wet Plate Collodion process, from mixing the chemistry, to creating the plates, to varnishing the finished work. I will be assisted by another fantastic Wet Plate artist, Melitte Buchman so the expertise to student ratio will allow for hands on experience with those that have been working and teaching the process for nearly a decade. This is a working class. With nearly two weeks of time to work in the process the workshop will be portfolio driven with the expectation that you walk away with a portfolio of images that reflect a strong knowledge of the process by the end of the session. There will be at least one day (maybe two) in the field working with portable dark boxes and my traveling darkroom so that the problems that are inherent to field work can be explored and dealt with. There will also be a day in which participants get to use either a 16 x 20 or 20 x 24 camera to pour and create ULF Wet Plate images. Penland has a beautiful campus with many disciplines where art takes center stage for the session so I hope you can join us. It promises to be an exciting two weeks.

    PM if you have any further questions about me, the class or Penland.

    best,

    Monty McCutchen

    Is there a possibility that this course could be run with you using skype so as to not offend anyone who is standing near you.

    Looks like a killer class and place, Monty. Would love to do this. It would be worth it for the personality alone. I'll come if you let me wear the purple bowler?

    I have a friend who's done a summer at Penland in ceramic arts. The class looks amazing, and it's driving-distance for me, but the two weeks off will be tough to arrange. *crosses fingers*

    Bob you should drive down and help out like Tattoo on Fantasy Island.
    Let me ask you something. If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?

    I wish Monty well, I have seen his big plates and they are nothing short of outstanding. Amazing what a Texan can do when they put their mind to it.

    Jim,

    Clemson is about an hour and a half from us here in Asheville, of course south of us, so that would put it about 2 and half to three hours depending on exact door to door times.

    Damn. I may have free lodgings in Clemson over the summer. An hour and a half I could do, but 2.5 hours? Probably wouldn't work.

    Thanks all for the interest and kind words. I think it will be a great class. Bob I checked with Penland and they definitely have step ladders, just wanted to make sure you could see the demo's if you decided to take the class.
