CHAW’s Photography Facilities require an initial orientation to cover general information and policies about space use and equipment. This is not an instructional orientation, users must be familiar with general darkroom workflow and digital processes. Orientation costs $45; each visit after orientation is a flat fee of $20.
If you have no prior darkroom experience, we will be offering introductory darkroom seminars starting this fall (2022).
