“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.“
