    Looking for large format workshop with darkroom

    I live on the east coast and I'm looking for a workshop that has some darkroom work.
    Is there any workshops in the fall that focus on B&W LF with a good amount of darkroom
    instruction.

    Looking for large format workshop with darkroom

    I am signed up for the Intro to the View Camera Workshop with Gordon Hutchings at the Maine Photographic Workshops in June. I have taken two other workshops there, and I have not only learned a great deal, but also thoroughly enjoyed myself. Nothing beats an entire week of photography from dawn until dusk.

    Looking for large format workshop with darkroom

    I liked Michael and Paula's workshop a lot but they teach the techniques they use and only those techniques, ie contact printing, developing by inspection, and a couple others. It was an excellent workshop if you were interested in learning those things (as I was) but IMHO not the best choice if your'e looking for something of a more more general nature.

    John Sexton's workshops are great, I've attended four of them, but that was before he started teaching only in his home studio rather than at places like Maine, Anderson Ranch, et al. where "gang" darkrooms were available. His home studio isn't set up for the students to do any printing at the workshop, everything is by his demo. It's still an outstanding workshop and I'd highly recommend it for anyone wishing to learn more about traditional darkroom work but it sounds like you may be looking for a workshop where the students do some of their own printing and you won't do that at John's home unless he's made a major expansion since I was there.
