Friday 28 April - 5 MayFree Event
The studio complex was formed in 1992 in converted farm buildings on the northern edge of the historical town of Colchester and houses over forty artists and printers.
The Print Workshop has existed since before the inception of the studio complex and one of its early members was chosen by a Cambridge museum take a print from an original Rembrandt plate. Members have shown work in London and across the East Anglian region.
The cooperative currently has thirteen members at various stages of technical and artistic development and their expertise is visible through their work which ranges from traditional etching to vibrantly coloured jigsaw prints. They work almost exclusively in intaglio and relief printing methods, i.e. etching, linocut, jigsaw, chine-collé and woodblock engraving.
Photographs of work and of printers in action can be found on the Facebook page Cuckoo Farm Print Workshop. Enquiries about courses or joining the Workshop can be made through firstname.lastname@example.org
