We collaborate with other artists on courses, events, projects and exhibitions and have built up a friendly community of printmakers. Join us in Medway where Rochester meets Chatham – only 40 minutes from London by train. Our much loved Victorian building INTRA on Rochester High Street has a fantastic Art Deco frontage and is a landmark in the historic area of Chatham Intra.
The large open workspace at the front of our building can be hired for activities or events, and our print studio can be hired by the day for groups to run their own club or teaching sessions for intaglio, silkscreen or relief printing.
If you know someone who would love to do a course, but you’re not sure which one – maybe a hand printed Medway Fine Printmakers gift voucher would make the ideal present. They can also be used for open access sessions, materials, and in the Printed Wonders shop at INTRA.
We have 2016 dates for adult classes in screen printing, photopolymer etching & relief, thermofax & heatpress, non-toxic etching, drypoint etching and Gelli printing on our courses pages, and we’ve added a new bookbinding class. For dates see panel on the right of this page.
Open Access restarts on Wednesday January 13th 2016 after the Christmas & new year break.
School groups & tutoring
We welcome the opportunity to work with schools, individuals and home education groups and can plan classes either using the specialist presses in our print studio, or by bringing some of our printmaking equipment to your classroom or space.
Most of our classes can be tailored for younger people and we have worked with groups of all ages. Recently we have facilitated preparation work for art scholarships, delivered elements of BTEC courses, and worked on some large scale projects with schools. Please contact us if you’d like to arrange a visit or class.
