Public Darkroom

VCP is proud to be home to one of Vermont’s only publicly accessible fully-equipped B/W darkrooms. Our spacious 4 enlarger darkroom is fully equipped with everything you’ll need to make gelatin silver prints, develop 35mm, 120, or 4×5 film, hand cut mattes, or dry/press/mount your finished prints.

We request at least a 24 hour notice before using the darkroom. You can email info@vcphoto.org or call 802-251-6051 and leave a message.

The fee for printing is $30/sessionThis fee is only expected to cover our costs of chemistry, which we provide. Renters are expected to bring their own paper and any other specialty chemicals or materials needed. There is no hourly rate at that point for printing, we only ask that you work within the open hours of the gallery unless prior arrangements have been made.

The fee for film developing is $7/hour with a minimum charge of one hour. This fee may vary depending if you are developing in tanks or using more chemistry to develop sheet film in flat trays. Please inquire.

ALL VCP MEMBERS receive an additional 50% discount on all darkroom rentals.
