Explore a taster of what darkroom printing is all about. In this evening taster class, you will gain beginner’s knowledge of how to print from your own negatives in the darkroom, leaving with your own hand-printed silver gelatin photograph. This workshop is an excellent precursor to one of our other darkroom printing workshops.

We’ll start the workshop by expanding on the process of darkroom printing, helping you to understand the workings of an enlarger and the chemical processes. We’ll then promptly move on to a more hands-on experience of printing from your own negatives.

All darkroom-based workshops are classes up to five, allowing for a more focused small group learning experience with our tutor.

  • Who is the Workshop for?

    This course is best suited to those who need a bit of a refresher on darkroom printing or those who are totally new to doing it themselves. You need to have exposed and processed your own roll of film beforehand, so understanding how to shoot with film is important prior to this workshop. Should you need support with this, our Analogue Photowalk is a great opportunity to get to grips with shooting film. You will leave this workshop having processed a roll of your own film and feeling confident in coming back to print in our facilities (or at home) again.

  • Do I Need to Bring Anything?

    Students must bring a roll of exposed and processed film, either 35mm or 120mm, to print from.
