SEEING WHAT DEVELOPS: B&W FILM PROCESSING

Darkroom – Part 1

Limited number of 6 participants (min 4 to run) – Demonstration + Practical

This session will provide you with an opportunity to experience the dark art of FILM PROCESSING. Importantly this session is intended as a ‘see how it’s done’ as well as a ‘do it yourself’ activity. You will be invited to bring along a 35mm-24 exposure or 120 film that will be processed by you as part of the workshop.

Who would benefit from this session:

  • People with no previous practical processing or printing experience including those who might have seen darkroom work done but not engaged with it at any significant level
  • Those who may have done darkroom work some time ago and are seeking a refresh program to update them on the contemporary process.
