Friday 9 June to 25 June 2017, at 12 venues throughout Medway
The second annual celebration of all things print promises to bring an exciting array of over 30 workshops, activities, talks and exhibitions to Medway, celebrating the strong local tradition of both contemporary and historic printmaking in the area.
Running for two weeks across 12 venues, the festival will showcase some of the best printmaking being created today as well as highlighting the fascinating history of the medium.
Activities this year include the chance to see or try your hand at screen printing, linocut, letterpress, textile printing, etching, block and relief printing methods, from fun children’s drop in activities to adult courses. There is also the chance to buy affordable prints direct from the makers.
Participants in this year’s event include Rochester Art Gallery, Medway Fine Printmakers at INTRA, The Guildhall Museum, Hazelnut Press, Nucleus Arts, Sun Pier House, The Old Brook Pumping Station and Rochester Cathedral.
The Festival is funded by Medway Council’s Arts Development team and is supported by a partnership of local creative venues.
