A co-operative printmaking studio offering workshops and exhibitions from our rural Suffolk studio

Sudbourne Park Printmakers is a vibrant, artist-run, co-operative print studio based in a beautiful parkland setting near the coastal town of Orford on the Heritage Suffolk Coast. Established in 2003 by Master Printmaker Gareth Jones (1944-2021), the group continues in the spirit of his legacy of high quality printmaking and sharing knowledge.

We are a group of 30 artists who produce varied work using a range of printmaking techniques in a well-equipped workshop and exhibit together in our studio twice a year, as well as in other galleries in Suffolk and further afield. Limited membership is available offering additional technical support from skilled and experienced members. We run workshops for adults in etching and relief printing throughout the year in our studio, where people can develop their printmaking skills whatever their previous experience.

Our artists

Our artists are a varied group in terms of age and experience, background and style, exploring a wide range of printmaking processes and techniques. Printmaking is a method of image-making that benefits hugely from a collaborative, group dynamic. Knowledge, experience, successes and failures are shared between members, and new things are learned every day.

The workshops are open to all adults and are a great way to either learn new skills or to refresh skills learnt some time ago. They are held in a friendly and safe environment in small groups with experienced and patient tutors on hand at all times. Participants have the opportunity to use our beautiful antique presses and come away with a set of prints.
