Caversham Press

12Jul 2011


The Caversham Press was founded in 1985 in the Caversham Valley of KwaZulu-Natal to afford South African artists access to a professional collaborative printmaking studio for the production of traditional limited edition prints. The Press was the first comprehensive facility of its kind in Southern Africa and has become highly regarded not only for the range of processes it offers and the expertise of founder and print-master, Malcolm Christian, but also for its reputation as an accessible and collaborative art centre.

Since its inception, it has worked with many notable South African professional artists including William Kentridge, David Koloane, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Deborah Bell, Mmakgabo Sebidi, Robert Hodgins, Bonnie Ntshalintshali and the late Gabisile Nkosi.

In keeping with the founding ethos, to offer accessibility and skills transference and to nurture emergent artists from disadvantaged backgrounds and other countries, residencies designed to generate creative dialogue between South Africans and people of other nations, were introduced in 1999. During this period it has contributed to the skills development of more than 250 artists including many that have become recognized in their various fields such as Ezekiel Mabote, Vulindlela Nyoni and Sarah Tabane.
