Discover the art and craftsmanship of black and white film photography in our Film Developing Workshop, located in the heart of Manchester. Join our vibrant community of film enthusiasts as we guide you through the captivating process of developing and scanning your own rolls of black and white film.

This workshop provides everything you need to explore the art of black and white film photography. You will receive a roll of 35mm film via post, allowing you to shoot at your own pace before returning to our community darkroom where our experienced staff will guide you through the entire film development process.

At the end of the workshop, you'll not only leave with newfound skills, collection of beautifully developed negatives and high-res scans, but also with a deeper appreciation for the art and heritage of film photography.
