Introduction to the Darkroom

Learn your way around the Paul Krot Community Darkroom. From mixing chemicals to understanding enlargers, gain a hands on introduction to traditional black and white photo printing. Students should bring two rolls of exposed film to class to develop. The cost of the workshop includes a material fee of $20 consisting of  film, five sheets of RC paper, and chemistry.
Note: This workshop goes over learning the darkroom only. If you would like to understand using your 35mm camera, enroll in the Intro to 35mm workshop the week before this one. You can register for that here.

Important Class Policies

To cancel your reservation, you must email at least two weeks in advance, or risk losing your payment.


If the minimum number is not met in class enrollment, the teacher may opt to cancel class. If this is the case, we will give a full refund of class payment and first choice to enroll in future classes. We will attempt to give as much notice as possible.
