The UK Wet Plate and Alternative Process Weekend 2022

Thanks to Ray Spence for organising this event again.

The UK Wet Plate and Alternative Processes weekend 2022

Guys Cliffe House, Warwick, August 19th-21st

Once again, Guys Cliffe House and grounds has been booked for what has become an annual event for wet platers in the UK. After several years of various sites around the UK, this central location is easily accessible by the majority.

After a very successful event in 2021 it is hoped that 2022 will welcome back regulars and newcomers to the event.
The weekend starts on Friday 19th August and goes through till the Sunday 21 st August. Both the grounds and the exterior of Guys Cliffe House are exclusively reserved for the use of participants.

Camping is available for those who wish it (which is most people) but there is plenty of B&B and hotel accommodation locally. A major attraction to most people is the social gathering and meeting with old friends and making new ones, especially in the evening when the camp fire is lit and the beer and wine flow. For those who prefer it there is a very popular riverside pub, the Saxon Mill, within a short walking distance.

Though this is primarily a gathering for wet plate collodion workers, I’m hoping that we can expand the creative potential. If you prefer to work on large format film, cyanotype, salt or pinhole then you are most welcome and encouraged.


Basically we welcome any level of worker and even if you are a total beginner or more advanced, there is a great deal to be gained from the experience of other workers, and from my experience there is no shortage of sharing of friendly advice.
