During this taster session, you will explore what film processing is all about and how we can practice it more sustainably. With a focus on using caffenol developer (instant coffee), you will leave with a DIY home brew recipe that you can experiment with again at home or in the darkroom. You will gain experience of how to process your own roll of film, an understanding of how the chemicals react inside the developer tub and touch on the different effects of the development process.

This workshop is an excellent precursor to one of our darkroom printing workshops. Class sizes are kept small to allow for a more one-to-one experience with your teaching artist. This allows you more focused time to spend on developing your skills.

Who is this workshop for?

This is best suited to those who already understand the process but want to try new sustainable ways of film processing or those who are totally new to doing it themselves.
You need to have exposed your own roll of film before hand so understanding how to shoot with film is important prior to this workshop.
You will leave this workshop having processed a roll of your own film and feeling confident in coming back to process in our facilities (or at home) again.

Do I need to bring anything?

Students must bring a roll of exposed black and white HP5 35mm film as this caffenol recipe is tailored to this specific film stock.
Be careful not to bring a roll of film which is a C-41 process, as this won’t be suitable for the session.
