Eastman Museum workshops have for decades provided ways to explore photographic and moving image processes—from how to make a tintype to turning digital negatives into prints.
Eastman Museum workshops are intended to help artists, educators, and enthusiasts develop their existing practice and to learn new skills. Experience is not necessary for most of the workshops.
In addition to offerings like ambrotypes, salt-printing, albumen prints, tintypes, and wet and dry collodion negatives, we have taught workshops on handmade 35mm black-and-white film, digital negatives, carbon printing, and 35mm daguerreotypes.
Historic Process Demonstrations
Our Historic Process Demonstrations are a great start for anyone interested in learning more about these techniques. You don’t need to have your own darkroom or any previous experience. Each hour-long webinar includes a hands-on demonstration of a process along with a brief look into the history and use of the process from curators and experts across the museum.
Note: Demonstrations do not include specific instructions or guidance on how to reproduce the historic process at home. If you are interested in diving deeper, getting the full recipe, and learning more, please attend see our Online Workshops or Private Tutorials.
Our Online Workshops are the perfect opportunity to expand your skills and see first-hand how to replicate photographic processes on your own. Limited to ten participants, each three-hour virtual workshop includes guidance on how to reproduce these processes in your own darkroom, full recipes, and a PDF manual with instructions.
Did you know that we can teach any of our workshops as a private online tutorial? Your one-on-one lesson can include hands-on instruction in a variety of photographic processes.
