After over 20 years at our previous studio Chilford Hall in Linton we
moved in March this year to new studios at Great Thurlow, Suffolk. To
recognise this milestone Artist Printmaker, and Curwen Trustee, David
Borrington MA RCA has created a unique limited edition print which could
be yours to own.
The print titled 'Let's go to Thurlow!", is a copper plate etching, with aquatint, and hand coloured, on quarter size Imperial Somerset paper printed by David at Dekkle Studio in Baldock, Hertfordshire. The image was designed and hand drawn by David and contains images and references to the history and journey of Curwen over the years with our Curwen logo, our previous studio building, presses, prints created at Curwen and people who have been a key part of the journey including Stanley Jones MBE and Sam Alper OBE. Also in David's design are many hands depicting the hands of the Tonic Sol-fa system adapted and printed by John Curwen in the 1850's, designed to help teach music sight reading to make music accessible to all classes.

This limited edition of 60 prints is available as a reward for your donation via our Art Fund Crowdfunding campaign. You can own one of these unique prints and help bring the Curwen Archive to life.
