Learn how to develop black & white film and silver gelantine paper with ecofriendly alternatives 

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to mix and use your own eco-friendly photo developer for both BW-film and photographic paper.  
For film development, we will mix a “caffenol” developer made of instant coffee, soda and C-vitamin. 
For paper development, we will mix and use a variety of natural ingredients that can be used instead of coffee, because they contain phenols that act as developer, (still using soda to achieve an alkaline pH, and C-vitamin to aid the developing).
