Master Darkroom printer and photographer Andrew Sanderson presents a day of black and white printing at The Art House.


The first day of the workshop begins at 10:00, where participants will discuss some examples of prints and go over the finer points of darkroom printing, exposure, tone and contrast as well as learning how to read a negative and previsualise.
Andrew will then demonstrate various printing methods using one of his own negatives in the darkroom – giving you the opportunity to observe how he prints before moving on to your own works.

Andrew will help participants to pick the best negative to print from, and participants will spend the day honing their skills with Dan’s assistance.


We ask that participants bring a selection of negatives to choose from.


Within this workshop, our aim is to produce good prints and not print a portfolio. We want you to leave this workshop with a better understanding of how to make prints in the darkroom so that you can improve your printing using the Art House Facilities.

  • Who is the Workshop for?

    This course suits those with a good basic knowledge of analogue printing in the darkroom. If you are totally new to darkroom printing, we would suggest starting with our ‘Darkroom Printing: Taster Session’ workshop first, before moving onto a more in depth understanding on our ‘Intro to Black and White Printing’ and finally, when you feel like you have good basic knowledge, you arrive at here, where you’ll leave feeling equipped with advanced extensive technical knowledge having made a series of refined silver gelatin prints.

  • Do I Need to Bring Anything?

    Students are required to bring a selection of negatives to work from. All paper and other materials will be provided.
