In the Summer of 2015 a group of specialist Graphic Design Foundation students were invited to Opificio della Rosa, a castle in Italy, to take part in a collaborative printmaking residency project with students from the University of Fine Art in Rome.

The students took part in a 12-day experimental workshop exploring colour woodcut and letterpress techniques while living and working together in the ancient castle. They reinterpreted and developed a new setof Major Arcana tarot and together created a deck of the 22 hand crafted cards.

The project was coordinated by lecturers Maria Pina Bentivenga University of Fine Art in Rome and Umberto Giovannini from Central Saint Martins in London.
