Darkroom introduction & printmaking

If you have little or no experience in developing your own photography, then this is the workshop for you. We’ll take you through everything you need to know and provide all the equipment that you need to create photographic prints. We can even provide beautiful pre-made negatives that you can turn into prints if you don’t have your own 35mm b&w roll of film.
