Cleveland Print Room Holga Class

This three-day class, taking place on Saturday, October 19 (11am – 3pm), Saturday, October 26 & Sunday October 27 (10am – 4pm), will focus on creating black and white images with film using the Holga camera. Popular smart phone apps like Instagram and Retro Camera were created to emulate the characteristics of the Holga, which has gained popularity amongst film enthusiasts.

The class will consist of three sessions. The first will be a 60-minute class to familiarize students with the many creative ways to use the Holga camera successfully, followed by an optional field trip shoot at the Railroad Preservation Society on West 3rd in downtown Cleveland.

(If you would prefer to receive a copy of the PowerPoint presentation version of this first session by email and only attend the classes the following weekend, just let us know!)

Students will shoot their film during the week, finishing the class with an intensive 2 days in the lab/darkroom developing film and printing images. You are welcome to provide your own camera, paper and film, or you can purchase these from the Cleveland Print Room.

The basic class price for members is $100.00, while $115.00 is the non-member price. This price only includes instruction. If you have your own Holga, and wish to bring your own film and paper then this is your cost for the workshop.

Class material add-ons:
We offer a class pack that will include a Holga camera, 2 rolls of 120 film and a roll of 35mm film, and a pack of 25 sheets of photo paper for: $60.00. This is in addition to the basic class fee.

If you have your own camera and would like to purchase film and paper only, the cost is: $30.00. This is in addition to the basic class fee.

Call 216-401-5981 to register. Class size is limited.
