From Unuseable to Unmissable

Episode 2: ‘Pimp that Space’

For all those desperate to get printing and developing photographs – the intensive clean and make-over of the Print and Darkroom spaces is underway! 

I have been busy and I believe you will all appreciate what has been happening – it is starting to take shape and won’t be long now…

I put together a small team of willing participants: Margaret, Norman, Charlie, John K, Keith D, Simon. 

Four photos of different shots of the moving team in the Print Room spaces, considering how to re-organise the equipment.

With some standing and ‘ummming’ – extra special thank you to Norman who reminded me of the fact that taking the heavy metal plate out would drop the rollers! – we moved the room around.

Three photos of shots of the moving team moving the prnt press.

The printing press in the mezzanine has been moved to the other side of the room. In fact, all the furniture has been shifted – now you can move freely and access all the work areas comfortably. It will always be a small place – but the team agreed this now looks like it might be fun to work here!

I am waiting on some black paint to further ensure that the darkroom is DARK!

An opening event of the studio spaces is being planned – keep a look out for the info on the What’s On pages.
