Would you like to get back into the darkroom, but don’t feel totally confident about going it alone? Then this Sunday session is for you!
Once a month, tutor Wouter van de Voorde will be on hand in the darkroom to support and guide you in re-discovering film developing and printing. If you completed our Introduction to Black & White Darkroom course a little while ago or remember using an enlarger in the 1990s, then this session is a perfect transition into independent practice. Wouter will also be happy to help you experiment with more advanced printing techniques. Session participants will have exclusive use of the darkroom.
Course cost includes a day-pass darkroom access, including chemicals, value $40. Film and paper packs can be purchased on the day, or in advance from PhotoAccess.

Wouter Van de Voorde grew up in Belgium and has a double master degrees in painting and printmaking from the Ghent Fine Arts Academy. In 2008 Wouter moved to Australia, where he now lives in Canberra with his wife Celia and son Felix. Of his work Wouter says “Moving from Belgium to Australia has made me into a photographer in exile. As a permanent tourist I seek refuge in my images, trying to create a sense of belonging for myself.”
