Learn about the Wet Plate Collodion method as artist Craig Tuffin leads us through a ‘process history’ with examples of 19th century daguerreotypes, tintypes, cabinet cards and more. Then join Craig as he creates a portrait from a willing participant using a glass plate in the darkened Gallery workshop.
