Visiting Professor Helen Gleeson gets her hands dirty in the CFPR Labs


Professor Helen Gleeson visited the Centre for Print Research to see the labs, meet colleagues, and get some hands-on printing experience. The disruptive print team put her in team overalls and made her a print apprentice for one day. She learned how to use the FAG proofing press and the screen print bed. There she proved that even after 30 years, screen printing was still in her muscle memory. The visit was the official start of the project ‘Direct print of structural colour with cholesteric liquid crystals’ in collaboration with Dr Susanne Klein at the CFPR.
