Wide Format Print Demonstration

Fine art print production & documentation

Date:18th – 19th September 2009
Venue: Impact Conference, CFPR, UWE Bristol
Instructors: Paul Laidler, Carinna Parraman, Melissa Olen & Peter Mccalion



The digital wide format print facility presented a series of four demonstrations during the Impact Conference. The separately presented demonstrations performed by each instructor covered the following areas of wide format printing. Print documentation, digital imaging for artists, colour science and Industrial Print workflows.

The print documentation demonstration presented by Paul Laidler described the practicalities of facilitating the production of an artists' print using the collaborative printmaking studio model. The presentation used a series of artist case studies from previous digital print collaborations at the CFPR to illustrate the varying levels of documentation required to reproduce an edition of fine art prints and disseminate the holistic nature of the collaborative digital studio practice.
