CPM started in 1989 as an artist led initiative to encourage the art of printmaking and
serving Northern NSW and SE Queensland.
Situated on the outskirts of Murwillumbah at Stokers Siding, CPM provides facilities for etching, lithography, relief printing, monotypes, lino and woodcuts.
CPM has an inclusive, informal, multi-media focus where artists of all levels of experience and in all disciplines are welcome to share insights and studio workshop
CPM is a non-profit, incorporated group financed through membership fees and supported by Tweed Shire Council and local businesses, and the NSW Rural Assistance Authority.
The Tweed Regional Gallery collection holds the winning prints and acquisitions acquired through the CPM National Print Awards 1991-2013.
CPM is not a teaching institution but is primarily an open-access studio for artists.
Prospective members are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the studio by visiting on any open day. Formal workshops are offered when there is sufficient interest.
Membership of CPM entitles you to studio workshop facilities, materials at cost and participation in group exhibitions and collaborative projects.
