Block T in Dublin have just built a brilliant new darkroom. It's a lovely space with six or seven enlargers, ranging from an old leitz egg-shaped model to a gigantic durst standalone that can deal with large format negs.

There will be courses run out of the darkroom and it is also available to rent. 40 euro for an 8-hour session is the price being talked about at the moment, no membership fee either. The prices get a little more expensive for shorter sessions, but it's still extremely reasonable.

You can inquire about rental by emailing smithfieldarts at
