Default Darkroom working and film

Welcome the friendly forum. There is so much expertise and knowledge here you cannot go wrong. I use the 'other type' of camera for my work because they want the results yesterday. But my darkroom is in full use for both colour and B&W and nothing will change that for me until the material become unavailable. They said that with artists, but they are still going strong.
Ask away, anything you want and you will get replies, there is not a lot we cannot give advice for or suggestions where it may be found.

Thank you to everyone for the warm welcome, Im doing my best to try to keep one or two steps ahead of my pupils, which is certainly forcing me to rapidly develop my own skills, so any help and advice is much appreciated!

Hi Neil, it was my sample one I made having just eaten the chocolate, and wondered whether I could make a pinhole camera out of it.

This is one from the cardboard and gaffer tape prototype I made for pupils to copy
