    ​Wet Plate Demonstration - Saturday, July 23, 11am-2pm at Glen Echo Park

    This is a live demonstration of the photographic process that was dominant from the 1850s-70s (i.e. during the US Civil War).  The photographer must sensitize, expose, and develop the plate in a matter of minutes, using a portable darkroom.  Results are available immediately.

    Sun Printing - Saturday, July 30, 11am-2pm

    A family friendly fun-for-all where everyone makes cyanotype shadowgrams.  This is an excellent introduction to cyanotype process.  Cyanotype is the simplest historic photographic process to learn.  It also can deliver extraordinary creative expression.
