You can hire one of our three darkrooms by the day or half-day at very reasonable rates – with or without tuition. We supply the print chemistry and you bring your own paper.
The darkroom is equipped with DeVere 504 / 203 and Leica V35 Autofocus Enlargers using MultiGrade heads and covering 35mm, 120 Medium Format and 5×4 sheet. You can choose either dishes for processing your prints or use our super efficient Ilfospeed 2150 automatic table top paper processor which delivers dry-to-dry prints upto 20×16 inches in just 80 seconds.
We will give you basic guidance if required on how to use the equipment or you can opt for a full-day or half-day “one to one” tuition, including demonstration of hand printing techniques from our supervising printer, David Champion – see tuition services.
