Darkroom: Black and White Printing Workshop

Next Start Date: 05-05-2020
Times: Tue 18:00 - 21:20

ENROLMENT INFORMATION: there are various ways to enrol, please go to our home page or www.kcc.ac.uk/enrol2020

This workshop will take place in our well-equipped b/w wet darkroom. It will introduce students, that have never printed in the darkroom before, to the basic fundamentals of black and white printing, while it will allow others, that have already have some experience with black and white printing, to learn more advanced techniques. Whether you are a beginner or already have some experience in the darkroom, you will be able to work at your own pace and build on the printing skills according to your level.

The course will include topics such as photograms, contact sheets, printing on multi contrast resin-coated paper using filters (and fibre based paper for advanced users), as well as dodging and burning. As the course mainly covers printing images from already processed film, participants should bring b/w negatives that they can use.

We are able to sell you small quantities of paper, so you do not need to buy any ahead of the course. Watching your print appear under a red light is magic you will never forget!
