Offering equipment and expert assistance, SW Darkroom is a sanctuary to produce exhibition standard work in a spacious and calm environment with minimal distractions. SW Darkroom is a collaborative printing space for fine art photographers. The philosophy behind thew Darkroom is a place for like-minded people to have access to a workspace in an inspiring environment. The darkroom was constructed in a remarkable space that was neglected and forgotten in a Gothic Revival building, built by order of Queen Victoria in 1859 as a school for girls. Hidden away and accessible by stairs leading down from the historic rear courtyard, the darkroom reveals a thoughtfully designed and renovated space with separate areas for darkroom hand printing, a natural light viewing room, four workstations with Mac computers, Colenta RA4 Colour Paper Processors. With capabilities of producing large silver gelatin prints up to 54 inches, SW Darkroom is unique in the field. Contact us if you would like to come have a look, we would be happy to show you around the space.
