About the course

During the Darkroom Printing Workshop, you will have the opportunity to use the College’s fantastic facilities, including a purpose-built darkroom, to learn the basics of printing black and white photographs from your very own negatives.

This Darkroom Printing Workshop is aimed at complete beginners, so you don’t need any prior darkroom experience to take part in this course.

You will learn each process necessary to make your negatives come to life, from test strips to final prints. Along the way, you’ll use a variety of techniques, including ‘dodging’ and ‘burning’ to enhance your prints. You’ll also learn how to alter the contrast of your print by using filtration.
