Creativity is for Everyone

We believe that creativity is in ALL of us here at The Wild Darkroom, no matter what your art teacher told you at school! This is one of the reasons we are here, to bring traditional, hands on, creative photography to EVERYONE.

Far far away, well, not that far, probably just around the corner actually, lives a girl (woman) who just loves photography. Always has done. Poised with her camera and a heart’s desire to bring people together to be creative, she started a little business.

That little business is the one you see here today, The Wild Darkroom. A place to learn to take considered photographs and tell stories, make prints and spend time together.

Down on the Kent Coast our little home workshop/darkroom lives, not far from our beautiful creek in our home town, Faversham.

We are a family run business and creative family time is high on our list of priorities. We don’t get too many months outside in the UK, so its great that cyanotypes can be done all year round. They simply take a slower pace, which is fine by us!

We started making Cyanotype Paper packs back in 2020. Following in the footsteps of photography that started with cyanotype in the 1820’s. It’s a beautiful and simple process, making it something we knew would be accessible for everyone.

Quality & Artwork that Stands the Test of Time

No matter where you are in the world, creativity is there too. We all communicate creativity in different ways. Even our differences weave together as a beautiful tapestry.
