During this workshop, you’ll explore the alternative alchemy of plant-based processes. Step by step, your tutor will take you through how to produce, store and use your own plant-based developer.

The day will begin with an introduction to, your tutor, Nick’s practice and an insight into plant-based alternatives for your developer. The group will then embark on a local Photowalk, with a 35mm camera provided (or your own 35mm camera if you prefer) and a roll of film (also provided). After finishing the roll of film, you’ll return to The Art House moving on to discussing the process and science behind making a DIY plant-based developer.

You will then develop your film with Nick’s support and once dry, take your film home with you.

  • Who is the Workshop for?

    This workshop is ideal for someone who already has some basic knowledge of processing and working with 35mm film and wants to develop those skills and expand their practice into other techniques. This workshop will not be running through the technical knowledge of using a manual film camera, it's more focused on the alchemy of the development.

  • Do I Need to Bring Anything?

    Students aren't required to bring anything but are welcome to bring their own 35mm camera if they prefer.
