    I would be happy to teach tray and reel processing of B&W and color as well as color printing (If I can get the chemistry). I would be happy to let people use the darkroom as well for the cost of utilities (water and electricity).

    The problem is that there is a liability issue with my home owners insurance. I believe that everyone in the US at least, has the same issue. I am willing to try to resolve this issue, but if someone uses my darkroom and my chemistry and is injured, I am responsible.

    Does anyone have an answer to that?

    That's more than $7/hour though, that's the point, to get there and make it financially do-able...

    Fairly certain most people who don't have a darkroom to begin with are not printing enough and not prepared to go from none to enough printing per semester to spend over $1,000 on a single class and still make it worth it.

    Remember I live in CT, in Fairfield County, second most expensive place to live in the whole US...

    So school classes are also expensive.

    Even other places where they are probably $600 a semester is still too much just for darkroom access. Especially if they don't actually need to attend the class.

    You can always volunteer to be a lab ........... well, let's just say helper.

    You cannot imagine how much I learned from Carnie by merely observing and flipping prints in developer. Your learning curve gets pretty steep when the first thing he gets you to do is flip a 20 x 24 print which will go for a tidy penny when completed.

    Darkroom available in Vancouver.

    I filled in the survey, and explained that I live in an artist live/work space (Vancouver zoning allows business licences for these units) and that it would be very inconvenient for me to give access to my darkroom (about 60% of my total area). As well, I am running a business here, and my darkroom is in daily use.
    However, I am involved with a film maker's cooperative that provides public access to a darkroom. The Cineworks Analog Annex darkroom is now open to the public for a drop in fee for a 3 hour session ($8 for non-members, $5 for Cineworks members). This is a non-profit organization partly staffed by volunteers, so the fees are only to recover the cost of the chemicals supplied. The darkroom is,at present, available on Tuesday nights, but access will be expanded if enough people are interested.

    I've answered the survey, and as most others I'm reluctant to let the general public into my home to use my rather small and cramped darkroom. I might let someone use it to learn the basics (under my supervision), but would probably suggest the use of the only open darkroom I know of in Oslo, http://www.cyanstudio.no

    8$/3hrs. That's a great deal!
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    PE - you can rent your space with a waver or terms of use. Usually insurance companies frown upon 'business' use in your home. You can buy separate 'business' liability coverage - but most home insurance wont cover your photo-stuff if they find out you are using it for business.
