Please ensure you have an already-exposed roll of film ready to go for this workshop. A "standard" b&w film such as Ilford HP5 or FP4 will be appropriate.

Please contact us if you have any questions at all.


None except to be able to bring along some already exposed and unprocessed B&W film to this workshop - call us for advice if unsure.

If you are not yet confident with your film camera or need to borrow one please contact the CCP. We can loan you a camera and provide a quick tutorial including loading your film before you go out photographing!
