If you want to take that leap into readiness, this is the workshop for you!

Mastering these techniques will ensure that you will always be able to create photographic emulsions, regardless of what happens to major film suppliers during the digital revolution. Enter the world of advanced DIY and learn to make your own photographic emulsion! This class will go over practical safety measures when mixing, storing and trying not to inhale or ignite various chemicals.
