“The Curwen Print Study Centre success story is of great importance to me personally. It was through many years of involvement with The Curwen Studio in London, that I became close friends with the late Sam Alper OBE, a serious collector of Fine Art. In 2000 we formed The Curwen Print Study Centre to focus purely on teaching the art of Fine Art Printmaking. We are a leading educational facility. Our continued success is due to the dedication and hard work of our team of first rate tutors and leaderships skills of Lorraine Chitson, Managing Director.“ Master printer Stanley Jones MBE Hon.D Lit President Curwen Print Study Centre
