Next film & darkroom weekend workshop: 31st July-1st August 2021
Due to demand we have decided to offer this workshop again, instead of waiting till next year. The workshop is limited to 4 people, but we will run with 3. You will need to pay a deposit to confirm your place (details below). This workshop will be run by John Williams
We also offer a short course on this, over 4 Monday evenings
Most people taking up photography this century will have started out on a digital camera. Marvellous tools that they are, there remains a great attraction to doing things the old way - silver-based analogue photography.
This workshop will uncover the mysteries of the darkroom, and you will find it's relatively simple to get started and add a new dimension to your photography. Anyone wanting to give their photography a lift should try shooting black & white film and experience developing and printing it themselves, by hand.
If you haven't used a darkroom for a few years, or decades, this workshop will provide you with a good brush-up on techniques. It is also suitable for those teaching photography as an art subject and wanting practical darkroom skills and an understanding of how the process works, and to pass on the knowledge.
