Medway Print Festival 2016

This month sees the launch of the first ever Medway Print Festival, an exciting new event featuring some of the key art institutions in the Medway area. Across two weeks, 9th to 26 June, there will be exhibitions, a print fair, courses, and printmaking activities for all ages.

At INTRA we’ll be kicking things off with a summer edition of our Wayzgoose Print Fair, complete with a fine array of hand printed artwork, textiles and gifts, letterpress demos where you can print your own souvenir, and our popular tombola where you can win a course for 20p!

Froinvisible-illness-printm Tuesday 14th we’ll be hosting a group exhibition of work created at the Medway Fine Printmakers studio, including the ‘invisible illness’ prints on textiles that Zara Carpenter has been working on recently. These only show up when a UV light is shined on them, they look incredible and were quite a challenge to print!

We’ve put together a programme of classes for the festival, including Drypoint Etching, Collagraph, Screen Printing, Linocut, Print Gocco, Bookbinding, and Gelli Monoprinting for families.

Have a look at the Medway Print Festival website for details of all the events taking place, or pick up a leaflet at one of the participating venues.
