Doing it in the dark gets better with practice and community. This week will provide individuals with 5 full days of supervised darkroom printing to help each individual achieve their vision. Daily demonstrations in advanced printing techniques such as working with split-filters, toning/split-toning and explorations in aesthetic choices via a selection of fiber-based papers, developers, and toners participants will reinvigorate their darkroom practice.

This course is for those individuals looking at pushing their Black and White darkroom practice to the next level.
