The George Eastman Museum offers one- to five-day photography workshops throughout the year. Participants get hands-on instruction from experts in historic and alternative processes, make their own photographs, and see prime examples from the museum’s incomparable collections.
Eastman Museum workshops are intended to help artists, educators, and enthusiasts develop new skills. Experience is not necessary for most of the workshops.
With the rapidly growing interest in historic and alternative photographic processes, we seek to contribute to the expanding movement of handmade photography by teaching how to make the same type of gelatin emulsions introduced by George Eastman in the 1880s.
In addition to offerings like ambrotypes, tintypes, and wet and dry collodion negatives, we have recently taught workshops on silver bromide emulsion paper, digital negatives, photobooks, and developed-out salt prints. Excursion workshops are offered a few times each year—from New York State locales like Letchworth State Park and the Adirondacks, to international destinations like the Fox Talbot Museum in England and the Yucatán Peninsula.
