Large etching press in a print roomOur printmaking studio has a fantastic range of presses and printmaking equipment with which to make fine prints on paper and textiles. We are a not-for-profit studio, run as a community interest company by Medway Fine Printmakers CIC.

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.

We run short courses and weekly open-access printmaking, we take part in Medway Open Studios and host our own events.

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.

    • Hi Paula
      There are several of our courses that can be applied to silk work – have a look in the courses section. At the moment we don’t have a specific course for printing on silk, but I’ve been planning a two day or evening course on textile repeat patterns using different techniques that would be relevant. I screen print on silk sometimes and it does hold some particular challenges! Drop me a message or use the Contact Us page and I’ll tell you more about what we could do.
