Subpage of Fotolab

Just wanting to document the steps being taken to turn what used to be a very chaotic & messy room used for film & photo development (among other things) into a really awesome photo lab/darkroom. :)

I'm mostly doing this to make it easier for myself to keep track of things (seeing as I volunteered for "getting stuff done"), but feel free to add to the list if there's something YOU (or someone else) contributed. Chemielab-related additions are welcome too, seeing as I won't be recording those.

Note: all progress is listed in date descending order.


  • meet-up of everyone interested in "running"/contributing to Fotolab/Chemielab/Etcherlab (kay, Mihi, Marius, possibly TomK32, surely Emi - if he's already back in VIE, claus, .. you?)
    • make list of stuff still needed (-> get prices for Metalab Executive Committee)
  • get in touch with Nina re: darkroom equipment from Germany
