BRIDGE works hard at improving each workshop to make your session fun and enjoyable.  Since 2013, Traveling Tintypes has moved out of their car and into portable darkroom tents.  YES! Seasonal trips have gone from twice a year, to six times a year, and new locations have been intertwined with some of our classic spots.  A special thanks to all our participants for all of their suggestions and feedback, without you our workshops would not be what they are today.

THE WORKSHOP

Each participant will learn how to make a 2.5 in x 2.5 in. tintype using a 4x5 view camera.  The workshop will start with group instruction, then participants will break up into small groups to complete their project.
