Our congratulations also go to our Head of Fine Art, Robin Mason, who won the 2023 Jill Bullen Memorial Award, and to all of our staff and alumni who had work shown at this year’s fair. Thank you to the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair organisers, alumnus Jack Bullen and Lizzie Glendinning, for another fantastic year.


The City & Guilds of London Art School Prize at Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair is awarded each year to a recipient external to the Art School network, and selected by a member of our Print Room team. The winner receives three days access to our Print Room, where they can explore and develop their printing skills alongside our tutors, fellows and students.


Established in the late 19th century, the Art School’s historic Print Room offers a facility for printmaking open to every student across all our courses: Foundation Art & Design, BA and MA Fine ArtConservation and Carving

Professor Norman Ackroyd CBE RA ARCA was instrumental in re-establishing the Print & Engraving Room as a thriving centre for teaching and practice in the 1990s. We focus on the traditional intaglio processes which is taught by our Printmaking Tutors and Fellows, who are all practising artists working with etching. Students have the opportunity to achieve an understanding and gain the confidence to make the process their own through hands-on experience.


Founded in 2016 by Fine Art alumnus Jack Bullen, the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair has grown to become the UK’s largest contemporary Print Fair. It features work from emerging artists alongside well-established names, providing an important platform for up and coming printmakers. Many of our Art School alumni, Tutors and Fellows have been selected to exhibit at WCPF over the years, including Robin Mason, Blaze Cyan, Irene Burkhard, Polly Bennett, Kristina Chan, Catherine Greenwood, Laura Clarke, Geraldine van Hemstra, Jemma Gunning and Rachel Goodison.
