Learn to develop your own black and white film! In this 3-hour workshop, instructor Bridget Conn will cover how to load film on a reel and process it, resulting in negatives that can be scanned for further use, or printed with an enlarger. The session includes a demonstration of the entire process, and then time for all participants to develop their film together. Workshop includes all chemicals and supplies.
Participants should arrive with a roll of D-76-based BW film already shot – participants will confirm the compatibility of their film before the workshop takes place.
All supplies and chemical besides film will be provided.
This workshop takes place in Sulfur Studios' brand new film developing darkroom! We will also be offering monthly memberships for area photographers, and plan to expand with printing facilities by the end of 2019.
