REGISTER FOR ORIENTATION SESSION


THE REQUIRED LAB ORIENTATION SESSION

 

How do I get started?

Everyone must attend an Orientation Session before using the photography facilities at Manifest Drawing Center. Orientation Sessions will cover safety procedures, basic workflow, darkroom guidelines, and the cleaning responsibilities of everyone using the space. If you have never processed film or printed in a darkroom before, it is highly recommended that you take an introductory photography class before attending an Open Lab Session.

 

LOCATION: Hosted at Manifest's Drawing Center Studios in Madisonville at 4905 Whetsel Avenue (second floor) (see map and directions below). Manifest's studio facility provides two classrooms, a darkroom, and a processing room totalling over 3500 square-feet. The studios are outfitted with professional equipment, furniture, and study aids.

PRICING

ONE-TIME ORIENTATION SESSION
$25 / $15 students**

  • Sundays 5–6pm

 


Please note: Registration closes 24 hours before each Orientation Session, to ensure that the proper staff and materials are available. You can register in advance here. Each Session is limited to 8 individuals to ensure that everyone receives proper attention. All upcoming Orientation Sessions are listed on our Darkroom Calendar.

 


TAKE THE DARKROOM (RE)FRESHER INSTEAD?

First Sunday of every month.*

During each Darkroom Refresher, Michael Wilson will be demonstrating the procedures and fundamentals of black and white film processing and enlargement printing in the darkroom. After participating in the refresher, stay for the Open Lab from 6-10pm to try the processes out yourself, and receive one-on-one feedback from Michael who will stick around to moderate the Sunday Lab.
