Amazing teacher - if you have been to Jess’ workshop, you are missing out. Great facility and really passionate business in teaching people to love film. I have forgotten how tactile film images can be and when I saw the final outcome of my roll of film it blew me away. Jess of very patient and helpful every step of the way. A must for everyone who haven’t shot film before or like me who haven’t done it for over 25 years and just need a refresher on developing your own film.

So glad I took this intro course into B&W film processing. A hands-on approach to creative work is the way to go. Jess is an exceptional teacher. Easy-going yet knows her stuff and passionate about film!

Great short course - had a blast and learned everything I need to process my own photos in the lab in future.
