Who is the Workshop for?

This course can act as an introduction to darkroom printing but, as it is required that you bring along a selection of negatives, it is best suited to those with some experience of analogue photography.

Do I Need to Bring Anything?

Students are required to bring a selection of their own negatives to print from. The Art House will be providing chemistry and paper. It’s advised that you bring a few different negatives as you may find some easier to print from, than others.
