During this 1:1 workshop you will learn how to develop your own black and white photographic film, whether that be 35mm or 120, and gain the knowledge and skills to be able to continue doing this at home or in a darkroom.
No prior experience is required, however a basic knowledge of photographic film is helpful.
This workshop is run in Margate (at The Margate School’s darkroom) at a time to suit you. When you click the button to book your place, you will be presented with a calendar from which you can book a date and time that suits you.
This course is planned around 3 hours including a 30 minute break for a coffee and bite to eat (included within the price).
All developing equipment including tanks and chemistry will be supplied. If you have a specific developer that you are interested in using, please feel free to bring it along with you.
You will need to bring along at least 1 shot roll of 35mm or 120 black and white film (not C41 such as Ilford XP2).
Film stock such as Kodak Tri-X / T-Max, Ilford HP5 / Delta / Pan F / FP4, Cinestill BWXX etc are all fine (as well as many other black and white film stocks).
If you do not have any shot black and white film, we will quickly shoot a roll from stock and develop this so that you learn the process (however you won’t leave with any interesting negatives).
The workshop is run in Margate in the darkroom at The Margate School on the High Street.
This workshop is designed as a 1:1 session, however, it is possible to run a film development workshop for up to a maximum of 6 participants with prior arrangement.
