Something I'd be keen to try, I just don't know where to start!

Gold Street Studios runs courses.

I also think Craig Tuppin can help.

Then there's YouTube...

I was more wondering about supplies. And whether there are any local supplies of anything. I'm getting a bit sick of importing almost everything.

I do wet plate
If getting from gold street you will pay big bucks for freight as it is deemed dangerous goods.
I have bought the website "wet plate.com.au " a year ago
Was planning on running supplies for the Sydney region if I get some interest I might be motivated to organize sooner rather than later.
I have done the course at gold street
And will be more active soon with wet plate.
It's cool shit!

If you already have the camera. All you do is cut a hole in a dd and do a few things and presto wet plate camera.
We prob should start a Fred for wp

Making a box for nitrate is easy just Perspex and super glue.
Yep that's the glue to bond Perspex.

Then just get your tin or glass cut to size and presto.
Camera.

Frank Meadow Sutcliffe's photographs are "a bridge that spans the widening gulf of time" (Michael Hiley 1979, 5).
