Polyester Plate Lithography, Mon - Fri, 9 am - 4 pm (August)
Register Polyester plates have made it possible to make lithographic images without the use of stones or even a press. Polyester plate images can be created with a wide variety of materials and techniques, from pencils, ballpoint pens, Sharpies, china markers and India ink to laser toner and photographic images, using 4 colour separation, and are extremely inexpensive. Because they are translucent, they allow for easy transfer of images and for prints using multiple plates. We will explore a range of techniques using polyester plates, from drawn and painted images, multiple plate images and photo lithography. Images will also be printed using both presses and hand-burnishing. This workshop is designed from students who have an intermediate or advanced knowledge of printmaking.

Making a Tintype - Wetplate Collodion Photography (July)
Register INTRODUCTION TO WET-PLATE COLLODION
In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to make "direct positive" tintypes from start to finish, each plate is a one-of-a-kind positive image exposed directly in camera on blackened metal. These timeless photographs use silver and light to develop a superior image with a surreal quality that will literally last for generations. You will learn the chemistry and techniques to pour, expose, develop and varnish your own plates. Each student can expect to shoot 3-4 of your own tintypes using converted vintage cameras.
On the 1st evening we will gather at the NGC in the prints & drawings study room and begin with a brief lecture covering history, and look at some masterpieces from the national collection.

On the 2nd evening at the OSA we will cover chemistry, recipes, pouring technique and safety, followed by an instructor demo.

Saturday & Sunday will be devoted to shooting and varnishing your plates with one-on-one instructor guidance. Each student will pick one of the unique vintage cameras provided to use during the workshop. These fascinating objects are the real thing, converted to make Tintypes, intimate images (approx. 23/4” x 41/4”) from cameras over 100 years old.

You will also receive recipes, information and resources to help further your wet-plate exploration. This class will be conducted in the darkroom and mostly outdoors with the emphasis on shooting in natural daylight. After completing this course, you will have the foundation of skills, experience and information to continue the Wet-Plate process on your own. Having a base knowledge and practice in analog photography would be helpful but not essential.

Some materials are included in the cost of the course, but extra materials may need to be purchased. For a complete outline and material list, please contact the Ottawa School of Art: info@artottawa.ca
