Why study this course?

This workshop is aimed at photographers and visual artists using photography who have a personal project in progress. You will have access to the black and white and colour darkroom. There will be introductions to both black and white and colour printing. However, you should already have some experience of working in a darkroom.

More about this course

This course offers you the opportunity to develop a range of advanced techniques to improve your print quality and creative expression. This is a hands-on, practical course that will also address the place of analogue in contemporary photographic practice. 
The printing and processing skills taught in this course will lead to the production of exhibition-quality prints. You'll also develop an appreciation and understanding of darkroom techniques. It should also lead to a gaining of confidence in your own photographic practice and give you a skill base that you can carry forward into any future photographic endeavours you undertake.
