Please join MONO NO AWARE and friends at the BUSHWICK COMMUNITY DARKROOM for a free workshop in non-toxic processing!

Everyone who attends will learn how to mix their own negative processing chemistry using a combination of consumable items from the grocery store. We’ll go over basic non-toxic processing options, then mix a synthesized solution created by Chris Knudsen and Steve Cossman based on the classic Caffenol (coffee) recipe and a beer processing “soup” developed by friend of the org (and master chemist) Dagie Brundert. 

All ingredients, equipment, and safety gear will be provided - Bring Your Own Black & White as an exposed roll/cartridge of black and white film, still or moving images. We will also have film dryer's, light tables, and projectors.
