Tutor: Tiu Makkonen

This one-off Black and White Film Processing Course is suitable for those who already have experience shooting B&W films but have never processed their own films before. You will learn how to load, process, dry and archive your own 35mm B&W films by hand, giving you more control over the whole creative process of shooting and working with B&W film. 

In this session, you will gain the required knowledge to be able to access the Street Level Photoworks film processing facility, provided you are an SLP member.

Please bring your own fully shot but undeveloped roll of 35mm B&W film to the session, ideally Ilford HP5 ISO400.

Chemistry is supplied.
