Workshops

At Work In Process we currently hold darkroom printing workshops by request. We've moved to a 'by request' system as we understand peoples timelines aren't as flexible as others! This also means you get 1-on-1 treatment during the class so you can really dive in the deep end and learn all there is to the wonderful world of darkroom printing.
