Bring your images to life in our Black and White Printing Workshop. Located in the heart our Manchester, our community darkroom is here to help you experiment with analogue techniques. This workshop provides everything you need to explore the art of darkroom printing, providing enough paper and chemicals to print up to ten 8x10inch prints. 

This workshop covers various techniques required to produce fully archival quality darkroom prints of your 35mm or 120 black and white negatives, including dodging and burning, using contrast filters and split grade printing, and masking and framing your final print. 

If you don’t yet have a developed roll of film, why not try our Black and White Film Developing Workshops.

At the end of the workshop, you’ll not only leave with newfound skills and a collection of beautifully printed darkroom prints, but also with a deeper appreciation for the art and heritage of black and white film photography.

Paper included

We provide you with enough paper to print at least five 8x10inch darkroom prints. Additional paper is available to purchase during the workshop.

*we suggest no more than 20 sheets per session due to time constraints
