Daguerreotype Workshop in collaboration with the Superior School of Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Goods | Madrid

 

New collaboration with ESCRBC, this time with a daguerreotype workshop with Becquerel Method.

David Gomez Lozano, vice-director of the school was the coordinator of the workshop. He opened generously to the participants the access at different spaces, materials and equipments.

It was a very complete collaboration where Paloma, school chemist, made a demonstration of silver electroplating. And we also had a conference/demonstration about daguerreotype preservation by Clara M. Prieto, conservator and restorator.

And we end with a demonstration of daguerreotype developped with mercury: the original way from Daguerre and the accelerated version with bromine.

Some samples of the plates made by the participants, GOOD WORK!
