Introduction to the Darkroom






Introduction to the Darkroom is designed for newcomers to analogue photography who wish to learn basic darkroom techniques, including black & white film development, making contact sheets and printing with an enlarger. Previous darkroom experience is not necessary, and a basic understanding of exposure, although useful, is not essential.

You are also welcome to bring along any exposed B&W films (or negatives) of your own, whether 35mm, 120 or 5x4 format. You will to be able to process and print from them on the day if you choose - paper and chemicals are supplied - and you may take prints home with you.
