Explore Independent Cambridge: Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale


With the help of Independent Cambridge - the definitive guide to ‘real’ Cambridge - Cambridge Network continues its weekly exploration of the best independent shops, cafés, restaurants, venues and events in Cambridge and the surrounding area. This week: the forthcoming Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale exhibition (22-28 September).


Following the acclaimed first show held in 2014, the second Cambridge Original Printmakers exhibition will once again be held at the Pitt Building in Trumpington Street, Cambridge CB2 1RP,  from Thursday 22 September until Wednesday 28 September 2016.

Cambridge Original Printmakers is a wonderful, independent event that aims to celebrate, educate and promote hand-made original printmaking within the Cambridgeshire area.

The 2016 exhibition will have individual printmakers who specialise in hand-pulled, original work. MA students from Anglia Ruskin University; The Print Studio printhouse who edition artists’ work; St Barnabas Press, an open access and editioning studio and The Curwen Print Study Centre, an educational charity will also be exhibiting.

Exciting keynote talks will be taking place throughout the weekend days including Angie Lewin and Dr Véronique Chance as well as other prominent printmakers.

During the weekdays, there will be print demonstrations, where you can find out about different printmaking techniques that perhaps you have never encountered before. Visitors will also have the opportunity to take part in a very innovative and collaborative print project.

At this unique event you will be able to meet and buy limited edition original prints from the amazing printmaking talent that lies within Cambridge.
