Optional Tintype Workshop on Thursday: Led by artist Addison Brown.  Held on the North End, this one-day historic photography workshop is suitable for novices or experienced artists. A tintype is a photograph made by creating a direct positive image on a thin sheet of metal (aluminum for this workshop) coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion. Tintypes enjoyed their widest use during the 1860s and 1870s; documenting the Civil War, scenes from the Wild West, and  booths at fairs, carnivals, and urban sidewalk photographers.

The full-day workshop consists of a chemical safety briefing, use of a large format field camera, the process of pouring, sensitizing, developing, fixing a plate and preserving the plate. All equipment and supplies are provided.  Brown teaches the workshop outdoors and in the on-site dark room at Ossabaw’s Field Lab.  Minimum four students, maximum eight students.  

Tintype workshop fees include:  instruction by Addison Brown, equipment use and materials, darkroom use and ownership of final work.
