Film & Darkroom Basics Workshop

  • Cleveland Print Room (map)

This class is for anyone who needs instruction on getting started with hand-processing and printing B&W film, or for those who would like a refresher course after a long absence from darkroom work.

This course is a comprehensive, intensive one-day course.

The session will cover B&W film developing and printing contact sheets of the negatives, plus printing photos from negatives in the darkroom.

Students should bring TWO rolls of shot standard B&W film to the class -- preferably 24-exposure rolls of the same 35mm film. 
Students will also need to bring a package of photographic paper. Participants can bring lunch or take a lunch break in the neighborhood. Please call with any questions.

Cost for this course, limited to 8 participants, is:

$125.00 for Print Room members
$135.00 for non-members

This class takes place during our member appreciation day and attendees must register and pay to attend in advance.
