Learn how to make new, “real”, images in old “charity-shop” cameras. Cameras will be provided but participants can bring their own.


Using single pieces of “film” participants will create new images in old cameras


·      We will learn how the cameras work – Lens, Film loading, Viewfinder, Shutter

·      Using pre-cut photographic paper, we will load the cameras in a “changing bag”

·      The film negative will be unloaded and developed without the need for a darkroom.

·      The negative will be inspected against a light table and viewed and recorded as a positive using The Kodak film scanner app.

·      Participants will have time to experiment making 2 or 3 better/different images.


Reviving something that has been written off as outdated/useless is not only satisfying but speaks positively to the soul. Finding out how the cameras and wet photography work reminds us what we have lost (and gained) in the digital age.
