Darkroom Tuition

at B&W Basement

A Real Photolab for Real Silver Prints

CORONAVIRUS / COVID 19

OUR POLICY STATEMENT

We are naturally complying with all Government guidelines and requirements in order to minimise contact and avoid cross-infection.

Unlike communal darkrooms, ours are of course self-contained and for exclusive use significantly reducing the possibility of close contact with other clients. However, in the current circumstances we feel it is prudent to suspend our Darkroom Hire and 1-to-1 Tuition services until further notice.

Nevertheless, we remain 'open for business' for our film processing and hand enlarging services so will continue to welcome both mail order customers and personal callers to our photolab.

Thank you for your continued support during this challenging period.

Learn the techniques of black and white film processing and hand enlarging in our professionally equipped Darkroom. Our popular and affordable One-to-One Tuition service teaches you how to load and develop the film, assess and expose the processed negatives, and make finished prints using the traditional dish method.

Features include:

  • One-to-One Tuition under the expert guidance of our senior printer David Champion
  • Half or Full Day Tuition options
  • All Paper and Chemistry provided
  • We supply Spotting Brush and Photo Dye Palette for print retouching
  • 1 or 2 person tuition sessions available

I found David to be an excellent teacher, and very easy going.

He explained even the most technical stuff so well and the notes he gave me were brilliant!

A wonderful day’s learning. Thanks so much.
