Darkroom Hire

We have three darkrooms for hire each equipped with 2 DeVere colour enlargers which cover formats from 35mm to 4 x 5". We can also offer for hire two 8 x 10" DeVere enlargers though please call for availability. There is a large daylight viewing area to asses your prints.  Our colour processing machine runs RA4 Fuji Professional chemistry and takes 4.5 minutes to process dry to dry. The machine is 32" wide with the largest manageable print size being 30" x 40".

Darkroom Workshop and Membership

There is no membership fee to join the darkroom although all newcomers who are not familiar with darkroom practice will need to complete a darkroom workshop. If you know your way around then you don't need to do one and we can just give you a brief run through.
