Non Toxic Processing Workshop


Mono No Aware X Gowanus Darkroom Non-Toxic Processing Mixer


Gowanus Darkroom and Mono No Aware will be hosting a FREE non-toxicfilm processing mixer/workshop on 4/23/17.  Bring a roll of film to process using coffee and beer.

Process your black and white film using beer and coffee - ALL FORMATS WELCOME! Participants will learn how to mix their own negative processing chemistry using a combination of consumable items from the grocery store. We’ll go over basic non-toxic processing options, then mix a synthesized solution based on the classic Caffenol (coffee) recipe and a beer processing “soup” developed by friend of the org (and master chemist) Dagie Brundert. All ingredients, equipment, and safety gear will be provided - all you have to bring is an exposed roll/cartridge of black and white film, still or motion picture.
