Caversham Press


The Caversham Press was founded in 1985 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. 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 and Bonnie Ntshalintshal.

The Centre for Artists and Writers hosts Residencies for local and international artists, writers and educators and undertakes local community collaboration projects. Situated at Caversham in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, Caversham operates from unique buildings providing comfortable accommodation in spacious, peaceful surroundings. Its professional printmaking studio and facilities of international standards are housed within an 1878 Wesleyan Methodist Chapel building.
