Give your antique film camera another life!

This is a beginner friendly, hands-on workshop that transforms old film cameras, into a single shooter camera with easy-to-use sheet film (ortho-lith film). Participants will learn exposure times, how to set up chemistry, and the basics of developing and printing in the black + white darkroom.

Cameras and darkroom supplies will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring cameras found from thrift shops or family basements /attics. The more cameras, the more photographs.
