In this hands-on workshop participants will learn how to process super 8mm black and white film using eco-developers and hand processing techniques.

Participants will learn how a super 8 camera works, the science behind film developing and how to process film safely. We will film, develop, and screen our film all during the workshop. The group will prepare an eco-processing recipe and then develop the film via bucket processing. Participants will learn about the history of eco-processing and be introduced to other artists incorporating eco-processing into their practice today. Participants will recieve a zine of the process covered in the workshop, links to online resources and other eco-developing recipes. At the end of the workshop students will have hands-on experience and the knowledge to embark on their own eco-processing adventures.
