The Curwen Print Study Centre

I am now approaching my third week of a course at The Curwen Print Study Centre, based in Linton, Cambridgeshire.  I decided early on this year to acquire a better understanding of print making.   I don't wish to change direction away from oil painting, but I thought a course in the basics of every type of print making would challenge me.  And challenge me it does!  So far I have spent my time learning to lino print and how to print using a collagraph.  The course is intensive but such a treat.
