SEITIES is very excited to have Rainika PhotoGraphik back for a formal tintype workshop virtually to walk us through the Tintype Process. This event will be recorded. A recording of the workshop is included in the ticket and will be shared with all registered participants to reference for several weeks after the event.
Tekoa Predika and Michelle Rainey share a passion of all things analogue and in addition to the pop-up tintypes studio at the SEITIES Publication launch events they have done many tintype parlours, events, markets, and festivals in and around Calgary, AB and Creston, BC, Canada.
