Networking Social with the Centre For Print Research (CFPR)

July 19, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Future Space members are invited to drinks, tours and networking with our neighbours at the Centre For Print Research.

About this event:

The CFPR is based in W Block, just next door to Future Space.

Meet at 4:00pm for a short introduction to the centre and a tour of the labs, equipment and the research they do, followed by a chance to network with their researchers and discuss any areas of interest with them.

And, of course, have a few drinks and nibbles as well.

Please sign up so we can predict numbers. We look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the CFPR Researchers:

Professor Carinna Parraman, Director of the CFPR

Dr Carinna Parraman is Professor of Colour, Design and Print, and Director of the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) City Campus, Bower Ashton. As Director of CFPR, she leads a cross-disciplinary research team comprising scientists and technologists, designers, artists, and researchers.

She is co-leader of an £7.7m Expanding Excellence in England (E3) fund, exploring the future of printing and fabrication, new ways of thinking and working, alongside traditional methods of making.

Professor Stephen Hoskins, Founder of CFPR

Professor of Fine Print and Founder of the Centre for Fine Print Research.

Apart from being a practicing printmaker, my primary areas of research are; the potential of 3D printing and related digital technologies for the arts, plus the tactile surface of the printed artefact and its consequences for digital technology.

Fabio D’Agnano, Associate Professor

His specialties as an architect are 3D design and digital manufacturing. Since 2009, He has taught at the Luav Architecture University of Venice, focusing on 3D modeling, deepened 3D printing, and electronic prototyping. In 2011, he founded the postgraduate master’s course in Digital Architecture – MADI.

In addition to his experience in design and 3D modeling, he has experience in design, electronic prototyping, 3D printing, coding, and digital craftsmanship.

Dr Sarah Bodman, Associate Professor and Programme Leader MA Multidisciplinary Printmaking

Sarah is Associate Professor for Artists’ Books at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR), where she run projects investigating and promoting contemporary book arts. Sarah is also Programme Leader for MA Multi-disciplinary Printmaking at City Campus, Bower Ashton.

David Huson, Associate Professor

David undertakes research into 3D rapid prototyped ceramics, continuous tone photo-relief printing and materials development of ceramics. He collaborates with industrial partners including Denby, Wedgwood and Kohler.

Dr Tavs Jorgensen, Associate Professor and AHRC/RCUK Innovation Fellow

Tavs’s core research interests are focused on exploring the design and innovation potential presented by new digital fabrication technologies – particular with the glass and ceramics mediums. He is currently in receipt of Leadership Fellow grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) with a project investigating the use of digital tools to develop new approaches with the ceramic extrusion process for architectural applications.

Dr Nazmul Karim, Associate Professor

I am an Associate Professor for Novel Print Processes and Materials (Graphene) at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR), UWE Bristol (UK). With about 12 years of industry and academic experiences in graphene science and textile related technologies, and a passion for getting research out of the lab and into real world applications, currently investigating into graphene and other 2D materials-based technologies aimed at developing scalable and cost-effective next generation functional and wearable textiles.

Dr Susanne Klein, Associate Professor and EPSRC Manufacturing Fellow

Dr Susanne Klein FInstP has been appointed a 5 year EPSRC Manufacturing Fellowship at the Centre for Fine Print Research starting January 2018. With her expertise in colloidal chemistry, optics and 3D printing, she is working on the reinvention of old printing technologies, such as Woodburytype and Lippmann photography, which will allow production of high quality prints for advertising, packaging, fashion and, at the same time, include fake-proof security features.
