Price: $140 member; $120 non-member

Capture your own unique image of the Carrie Furnaces on solid metal! This exciting workshop, a collaboration between Rivers of Steel Arts and Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, will introduce you to the historic photographic process of “dry plate” tintypes. Popular during the late 19th century, tintype photographs were originally photographed on enameled iron, and sometimes called “Ferrotypes." Join photo artist Jeffrey Krsul at the furnaces, and don’t miss your chance to have your own unique image of the Carrie Furnaces preserved forever.
(This workshop also includes standard digital photographic opportunities for participants.)
