Inkus are a group of artist printmakers from Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Essex, who meet regularly to print together, and who show their work collectively (see news & events) as well as individually (see artists). The Inkus artists bring together various artistic, academic and life interests, stimulating each other to produce works that are rich in content and style. A wide range of printmaking techniques are employed, including drypoint, linocut, woodcut, monoprinting, collagraphy, screen-printing, lithography and etching, to produce either unique prints or editions. As well as traditional methods, some use is made of developments such as photo-sensitive materials and digital image-making. The Inkus artists also make specialist papers and produce artists' books. The artists formed Inkus after they met at the Curwen Print Study Centre, where they each gained a certificate in Advanced Printmaking Techniques.

The Curwen Print Study Centre offers a wide range of high quality practical teaching in printmaking, papermaking and bookmaking, and provides open access days for artists. Adults and children enjoy study days, courses and summer schools; and teachers and students in schools and colleges benefit from the centre's studio and outreach programmes. The Centre was established in 2000 on the same site as the Curwen Studio (at Chilford Hall, Linton, Cambs), by Stanley Jones MBE, Master Printer and Director of The Curwen Studio, with Sam Alper OBE, managing director of Curwen Chilford Prints.
