Stills is offering the rare opportunity of producing colour pinhole images using a combination of analogue and digital methods.

An introductory session will run from 11.00am - 12.30am, Monday to Friday, where an instructor will guide you through the process. You will be shown how to

  • Load your camera with colour darkroom paper* 
  • Make an exposure 
  • Use the colour processor to make a paper negative 
  • Scan your negatives and invert to a positive 
  • Produce a digital print**

Having completed one of the introductory sessions you will then be able to use the facilities for the rest of the week to produce colour pinhole images at your leisure between 12.30 and 4.00pm. Advisors will be on hand to offer assistance.

*Stills will provide colour darkroom paper and a limited number of pinhole cameras. Please bring your own pinhole camera if you have it.

** Digital prints will incur additional costs
