Taught through a series of demonstrations and exercises, this practical skills-based workshop is an intensive 3 hour introduction to the darkroom, taking students through the fundamentals of black and white printing, how to use an enlarger and develop prints with photographic chemistry.
You will learn how to print from negatives; how to produce a test strip, resulting in you producing your own resin coated, silver gelatin based photographic images to a good standard.
By the end of this workshop you should be able to:
Create a selection of images using techniques learned
Be familiar with working in the darkroom
Who Should Attend:
This course is designed to refresh those who have not printed for sometime and familiarize those who are new to printing in a darkroom.
Beginners. No darkroom experience is required.
- MATERIALS: Paper and Chemistry.
- PRINT OUT INSTRUCTIONS: Information and step by step guide to all aspect of the workshop contents.
What to Bring:
The course only covers the printing of images from already processed black and white film – it does not cover the topic of film processing itself; participants should therefore bring previously processed black and white negatives, however if you do not possess any they can be provided.
Please note the studio is up two flights of stairs. Unfortunately there is no wheelchair access.
