Episode 5: Print, Play & Explore launch!

I organised a couple of short ‘taster’ classes for the Print and Darkroom studios: these additionally gave the participants a free induction to the Workshop and Darkroom.

The opening of the ‘transformed’ Print Workshop and Darkroom on the 23rd of September went very well. The introductory classes were also a trial run – they provided useful information – testing the performance, max workable person capacity per room and allowed me an opportunity to view the studios in action.

The event was a success, the spaces were functional, and the expected outcomes were met.

Max capacity for Print Workshop members – 3, 4 (with sharing) 

Max capacity for Darkroom members – 2 (no sharing) 4 (sharing enlargers)
