    5 out of 5

    Excellent course which accommodated people with a wide range of experience from complete beginners to those who had booked many times and were there to use the darkroom facilities and to discuss their work with the tutor. Tutor will help you as much as you need with great patience or leave you to get on with it – whatever you prefer. Really friendly course. You get stuck in on day one and then have the freedom to experiment every week with new techniques. Have booked my second course.
