The Centre for Fine Print Research offers a series of dynamic continuing professional development courses (CPD) aimed at a wide audience including artists, designers, craftspeople, communicators, photographers, teachers and managers. CPD courses offer the opportunity for professional updating, learning new skills and techniques, and for intellectual stimulus.

With its layers of paperboard, polyethylene and aluminum foil, Tetra Pak offers not only an immediacy which other collagraph materials lack, but also a satisfying tactility when cutting, scoring, peeling and printing with this distinctive material. In recycling milk, soup and custard cartons; exciting imaginative creative responses abound. The structure of the packaging can be the spark of an idea or integrated into a motif. Large prints can be created when collaging Tetra Pak plates together.



During this two-day introductory workshop into Tetra Pak collagraph print, the course tutor, Stephen Fowler, will facilitate the exploration of intaglio and relief print, a combination of the two processes, and the potential of mutli-plate printing. On day two there will be time to play, create and develop your own body of prints.
