The salted paper print was an early negative/positive printing
process developed by William Henry Fox Talbot in England in the
1830s.  Many beautiful examples of this process were created in the
19th century and can be found in a variety of photograph
collections.  This workshop will allow the participants to create
their own salted paper prints by guiding them through the steps of
the process.  A brief lecture will acquaint the participants with
the basic chemistry and variations of the process and discuss
preservation concerns.  Interested participants are invited to tour
the NEDCC facilities at 2:30 PM.

This workshop is designed for those with limited training in
chemical photography who have an interest in learning more about
salted paper printing.  Pre-program and student participants are
welcome as is anyone would like to get hands on experience printing.
