This workshop is for artists just starting up in historic processes and for artists who want to improve their approach to early chemistry and images. Participants will learn the chemistry used by William Henry Fox Talbot in creating all of his images up to 1839 including photogenic drawings and mousetrap images.
Roger Watson, Curator of the Fox Talbot Museum will be available to answer any questions on Talbot, the history of photography and Lacock.
Each participant will receive full printed instructions and formulae. All chemistry and equipment will be available here for use by the students.
