In this hands-on darkroom Masterclass students with some familiarity of darkroom practice will learn how to print archivally using fibre-based paper and toning. Students will be provided with a kit of 25 sheets of fibre-based paper made specifically for the class, containing 4 different paper types, such as textured, warm tone, gloss and matt finishes, to test and compare. This is a rare and affordable opportunity to try a variety of paper finishes with different aesthetic outcomes. The materiality and process of hand printing is elemental to darkroom practice. How paper finishes can be used to enhance conceptual concerns will be discussed in addition to presentation options for fibre printing.

Participants should have basic darkroom printing skills and are required to bring 35mm negatives to work with. Please call the gallery on 9417 1549 and to speak to Linsey if you would like to discuss the suitability of this class for your darkroom experience.

Linsey Gosper is an artist, curator and educator, and the gallery manager of CCP. Her business, Strange Neighbour just a few doors from CCP has a community black and white darkroom for hire and from here she teaches darkroom educational workshops.
