National Heritage Weekend Wet Plate Event

TodmordenTo celebrate National Heritage Weekend, we took wet plate portraitsat this two-day event on Saturday September 13th and Sunday September 14th organised by Michele Selway in Todmorden Unitarian Church.

The church is a fantastic venue, “full of quirky features and secret places, managing to be both grand and imposing, and warm and welcoming at the same time.”

There was lots of lovely stuff to enjoy at the event, including the local art that decorates the church, home-made cakes, grounds to picnic in and a warm and welcoming atmosphere and of course… making metal and glass plates with large format Victorian cameras.

Here is a photo set of some of the plates we took:
