Darkroom

Due to relocation to a new building the darkroom is temporarily unavailable. The new darkroom is still under construction. We hope to be open for members in februari 2020.

If you want to be updated of the opening of the new location make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter (in Dutch only). Subscribe via cafu.nl/newsletter

The darkroom is available for members of CAFU who want to develop films and make prints of their film. In the darkroom are enlargers for 35mm, 6x6cm and 4×5 inch, chemicals, and a workspace available.

If you have no experience yet in the darkroom we offer you two introduction courses: developing films & printing from negatives.

Booking
Use of the darkroom is possible (with or without guidance) for CAFU members with a darkroom membership. After booking (see form below) it will be confirmed by email or phone, only after confirmation the booking is valid. The phone number and email address are mandatory, so our darkroom administrators can contact you to talk about what you would like to do in the darkroom so it can be planned accordingly.

If you already have experience with printing and developing and you would like to come and try our darkroom you don’t need to have a membership yet. When you decide to use the darkroom again the next time you are required to be a member with full darkroom membership.
