Salt Printing Workshop

Our tutor David Chalmers has evolved his expert knowledge of traditional film and processing techniques into alternative photographic processes and has become a skilled and experienced salt printer. He uses an historic formula first discovered by pioneers of photography practicing in the 1830s.

In this salt printing workshop, David will share the history and chemistry of this process that signalled the birth of modern photography. You will then be guided through the process yourself, in order to make your own unique images created using salt, silver and sunlight.

All the materials required for salt printing are provided in the cost of the workshop.

However, students are encouraged to bring their own 5x4" or 8x10" negatives in order to personalise their prints even more. These can be original film or digital but note, this is not essential as David will have some 5x4" negatives for students to work with if needed.
