    Hi folks,

    Just signed up as this seems a good a place as any to ask about community darkrooms or the like in Melbourne. I'm in the inner North, and I know there's one being set up on Gore St, Fitzroy, some time in the future - but I was wondering if anyone knew of any others?

    Been shooting digital for the last few years and it's been about 10 years since I've worked in a darkroom, so I'd certainly need some practice! I'm a teacher and so want to get my skills up again before I try and (perhaps) rig up a darkroom at school.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Melbourne Camera Club does have one. SMBooth here on APUG should be able to advise more detail.

    The folks at http://www.lightleaksphoto.com in Chapel St, South Yarra, have a crowd-funding project going currently to setup a community darkroom. So there's another option...

    Marc!

    Yes MCC has one , but need to be a member to use it. There is one in Pitt St Brunswick, part of a art group thing. Try looking at the online group called silver mine, I think theres a link there to it.
