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.

Instructors are Amanda Maloney and Maggie Wessling, Assistant Photograph and Paper Conservators, Northeast Document Conservation Center
