Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale

Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale is an independent innovative exhibiting event based in Cambridge UK.


Sadly Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale 2016 is now over. Thank you to all who participated and visited our exhibition.


The goal is to promote and further a knowledge and understanding of printmaking and its technical variables and complexities to a wider audience. This will be achieved through exhibitions, demonstrations, and talks on printmaking.

Printmakers who specialise in hand-pulled original prints working within a 35 mile radius of Cambridge UK (from the marketplace) will be exhibiting bi-annually.

The selected Printmakers chosen to exhibit at the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale exhibition 2016 can be found here.
