I think it is manual labor. As is working in a darkroom, for example. "Work done with the hands."

Wikipedia: "Physical work done by people," and "most literally work done with the hands (the word "manual" comes from the Latin word for hand), and, by figurative extension, it is work done with any of the muscles and bones of the body."
