Darkroom Crash Course

The Darkroom Crash Course is a 3 hour introduction/refresher in using a darkroom for people wishing to take on a Photo Parlour membership.

During the workshop we will:

  • Run through all the facilities available to you in our darkroom and discuss the features and different qualities of each of our enlargers.
  • Create a contact sheet from your negatives in the darkroom.
  • Choose two images to print from your negatives.
  • Run thought all aspects of health and safety and etiquette in the darkroom.

By the end of the session you will be able to confidently use the darkroom and have a contact sheet and a couple of prints to take home with you. All you need to bring with you is some processed black and white film (either 35mm, medium format or 5x4 sheet film).

You are welcome to bring your film in for us to process for you prior to the workshop, we just need a 24hr window to get it done.

This workshop costs £50.00 and includes one free 4 hour darkroom session, after which you are able to take on the membership from just £18.00 per month.

The next dates for this workshop are...

Wednesday 12th July 6pm-8pm

Saturday 22nd July 1pm-4pm

The Darkroom Crash Course can also be taught on a one-to-one basis or in small groups and can be arranged at a convenient time during our opening hours.
