Darkroom Tutorials


We now can use the larger Darkroom in the Mappin Building, so we can now start teach you how to develop and print your own film.

There will be about 2-3 sessions each week, depending on tutor availability/work load and each tutorial has 3 spaces. There might be more made this week, without an email to let you know, so do check back.

You must book (or email us if the booking system is not working) to let us know you’re coming. It is impossible to teach well and a waste of time for all if more than 3 people turn up, so we’ll probably turn you away if you haven’t booked. Please be punctual, because if the tutor has a lecture to go to straight after, there is no time to waste.

You can bring a film to develop to the tutorial if you wish. We (currently) only develop black and white film.

This week we have:

  • Monday 17th Oct 12:00 -12:50 Group 1 Developing¬†¬† led by Jack
  • Wednesday 19th Oct 10:00-10:50 Group 1 Developing led by Max

Book here

Here is a diagram to learn about film composition and a written tutorial on developing film to give you an idea of the process.
