ONLINE—Salt Printing: Demonstration & Conservation

Friday, December 3, 2021, 1 p.m., Online

One of the earliest methods for printing photographs was known as salt printing. Introduced by William Henry Fox Talbot in 1839, the salted paper method involved printing the image by light rather than developing with chemicals. 

In this webinar, Historic Process Specialist Nick Brandreth will demonstrate how salt prints are made. Then, Sarah Casto will discuss salted paper prints from a conservator's perspective.

Free to members; $12 for nonmembers. Registration via Eventbrite.

See our Refund Policy here.

Recording of this demonstration will be available to all paid attendees and members.

Note: This demonstration does not include specific instructions or guidance on how to make your own salt prints. If you are interested in diving deeper, getting the full recipe, and learning more, please e-mail workshops@eastman.org for information.
