Welcome to the Mori Darkroom!
After months of preparation behind the curtains we are proud the announce the opening of the Mori community darkroom!
"The process of making a photograph doesn't end when you fire the shutter."
We built our darkroom with two things in mind; comfort and easy of use.
The darkroom can accommodate up to 6 printers at the time.
Our fully light-tight enlarger rooms provide complete immersion and uninterrupted printing even when the darkroom is at max capacity.
Our 25m2 wet lab is fully equipped with a custom built sink making developing prints up in trays very easy.
For faster and easier black and white print developing we also have an Ilford 3876 capable of developing print up to 50cm wide in 3 minutes wet to dry.
The Mori Darkroom is before anything else a place where everyone is welcome to come and create.
With or without a membership bring your negatives and start printing your own pictures the way they were meant to be!
"There's something magical about holding a photograph that YOU made from start to finish."
What do we offer?
Black & white and colour enlarging: while black and white printing is great, most people nowadays also shoot colour and we think you should have the possibility to print both types yourself.
Easy to use for beginners: Darkroom printing should not be intimidating. We want you to be able to understand the equipment well and have fun printing.
Fun to use for experienced printers: We want to give our more experienced printers a choice between 'easy' and 'advanced' equipment, which is why we decided to invest in some top-of-the-line equipment.
Accessible and easy to book: Planning your printing sessions in the darkroom should be easy. Book a time slot directly on our website and just drop by and start printing.
Big enough for multiple users at the same time: A good darkroom needs to be big enough and efficiently laid-out for multiple people to use it at the same time, without interfering with each other’s work.
Flexible time slots: book for just one hour or for several. Just have a couple of pictures you want to print? Simply book a couple of hours with no strings attached and you’re good to go!
Accessible and affordable for casual darkroom printers and students: We want to make it accessible for casual printers by offering an hourly rental system for those who just need a couple of hours every now and then. Looking to print regularly? We'll also be implementing a membership plan, giving you significant discountson darkroom and lab pricing over a month or trimester.
Experimental: While it’s primarily meant to be a traditional darkroom we also want to create a place for people to experiment with alternative processes. This will be possible on special darkroom days and during courses.
Most importantly it should also be a place where you can learn. We want to hold regular courses for you to be able to learn how to use a darkroom and be completely independent in creating your own beautiful prints.
The darkroom is available to photographers with prior experience and to beginners who undertake one of our workshops.
If you've had a prolonged time since printing in a darkroom we can also offer an express refresher course at the beginning of your session.
