Road Trip Darkroom at Featherstone Castle

At a weekend residential at Featherstone Castle I set up an open access Dark room for the adult participants top access and use – calling this a ‘Road Trip Darkroom’

First issue to deal with was making the room dark and creating a reasonably safe workstation to allow some work to be made.

I had deliberately not created a fully formed workshop – lets all do the same thing…but tried to suggest diffrent ideas.  I did point some participants towards ‘making negatives’ out of selotape and sampling textures and paint peeling from the old castle:
