Salt Prints


Salt workshop_59A6832

This workshop introduces you to the first successful photographic paper process presented by William Henry Fox Talbot in 1839.

It covers this historic ‘printing-out’ process from start to finish and you will learn to:

  • prepare light sensitive paper by applying sodium chloride (common table salt) and silver nitrate to a sheet of paper;
  • expose this self-made photographic paper to UV light to create an image;
  • wash and fix the exposed paper to arrive at the final permanent print.

Salt prints have a unique matt appearance that resembles pastel drawings and their tones range from warm reds to cold blacks.
