Along with plenty of development tanks. Membership to use just the darkroom is £15 annually and then £3.50 per hour. All chemicals are included in this price.

We run a host of photography and darkroom workshops throughout the year so check out our workshop pages if you're looking to learn how to shoot film, develop and print your own images or just looking to improve your photographic skills.
And finally there's our lovely shop. We stock a whole host of different items for you and your home. We sell prints both made in house as well as by a variety of artists working within the city and further afield. We also sell Tshirts, bags, plants, ceramics, hand crafted items such as leather purses along with stationary and greetings cards. Most of our items are available to purchase online as well as in-store. If you live in Coventry you can also choose to pick up in store with late openings most evenings.
