    anyone know where i might do some colour handprinting.i have a large amount to do so i need to hire a darkroom with an ra-4 dry to dry machine that can process 24" x 20" prints. was going to go to london for a few days to do it but would much prefer something closer to home. any advice greatly appreciated:smile:

    Have you tried the Gallery of Photography in Dublin? I know the have darkrooms, not sure about the max print size though. There's also Airfield house in Dundrum, Peter (TheFizz) & Fintan are our resident experts on Airfield, so I'm sure they will chime in.

    the gallery of photography colour darkroom closed some time ago. no colour in airfield.
    its off to the uk for you peter, i dont think you will find what you are looking for to rent here unfortunatly

    you could ring pete smyth in the gop first just to be sure.

    good luck with the new project
