Courses run in both Morning Session (10.30-13.30) and Evening Session (18.30- 21.30). At the moment each session is a total of 12 hrs and will consist of 1 full day and two 3hr morning/evening classes.
The Darkroom will provide all chemicals needed for the duration of the Course and paper for the first 2 weeks. The cost of the course includes one free 3hr session in the darkroom, which can be taken after the courses finish. The Darkroom has a collection of 35mm film cameras, that we loan out to students, a deposit is required and will be given back on the return of the camera.
Students must be able to use a manual or automatic film camera so that you can shoot a black and white film, to develop yourself in the darkroom.
