We run courses in artists’ books and related processes with visiting experts and in-house staff. All of our CPD book arts courses are featured in the Book Arts Newsletter.
Our Book and Print Summer Institute normally runs from June-August with physical classes here at the Centre for Fine Print Research. However, due to Covid-19 we have decided to instead offer a free online festival this year to keep artists and the public safe.
Please join us online for a festival of free talks and things to do or listen to and some creative challenges set by our CPD summer school artists and poets. CFPR staff will also be hosting some free talks to dip into. The festival runs from Monday 20th July – Monday 3rd August, download the programme here.
