If you are new to film photography or looking to take your next steps in the analogue photography process, this workshop is a fantastic opportunity to learn how to develop your own black and white 35mm film.
The day begins with an introduction to the best practice and theories behind shooting a roll of 35mm film. You will be shown how to load your film, manually set up and shoot your film camera. You will then be taken on a guided photo walk shooting an entire roll of 35mm film.
Back at the darkroom, you will be taken through the entire process of developing your own black and white film. This includes choosing the correct equipment and developing chemicals, setting up your space at home, and a demonstration of the full developing process. Following this, you will develop your roll of film from start to finish with the assistance of the workshop tutors.
The workshop will culminate with a discussion on printing and scanning techniques followed by a demonstration of contact sheet printing. All attendees of the workshop will go away with their developed roll of film and a contact sheet of their images.
The price of this workshop includes the full day practical workshop and a roll of Ilford film. Developing materials are included in the price as are light refreshments and snacks. Lunch is not included.
