Learn how to develop B&W film away from the darkroom using household materials. This workshop will focus on Caffenol: a coffee-based DIY film developer that can be used safely at home. Participants will learn how it works, how to mix it, and will follow along with Heather to develop a roll of their own film using this non-toxic homemade developer. Due to the current Ontario COVID-19 restrictions, film developing tanks will be available to borrow after the fact. A list of necessary supplies + prep instruction will be sent to participants 2-weeks in advance of the workshop. In the event you do not have the necessary tools or materials, we still encourage you to attend and ask any questions in live time. Participants will be given access to a recording of the workshop as well as detailed written instructions so that they can attempt the process on their own as well.
