For Medway Print Festival 20, we’ve created a series of video tutorials and conversations with printmakers, to make up part of the ‘Lockdown Edition’ of this annual printmaking festival. We’ll be releasing them on our Medway Print Festival page from 6th – 21st June 2020, and hope you enjoy them! Many thanks to Medway Council’s Arts Development Team for commissioning us to make these videos.
We’ll be sharing three video printmaking tutorials, mostly using things commonly found at home, and focusing on tweaks of techniques that usually require a press: etching, lithography and relief printing. In these tutorials Xtina Lamb has fun showing you how to use make-shift equipment, and get great results with surprising materials.
In three ‘in conversation‘ videos, Xtina discusses techniques with printmakers who use particular methods, getting their personal takes on linocut (Nick Morley), screen printing (Rachel Moore and Francesca Baur), and mono-printing and collagraph (Kristiina Sandoe).
Please share the Medway Print Festival website and activities, and use the hashtag #mpf20lockdown. We’d love it if you could post photos of any prints that you’ve made during the festival.
