45 of the UK’s finest printmakers showcase their work in the festival championing the original hand-made print. Meet the artists, discover more about their methods, and maybe find something to take home with you.

Printfest is more than your average exhibition – it’s a unique opportunity to really get under the skin of this wonderfully creative artform, with all the displaying artists on-hand to talk to you about their practice. With Fringe activities from workshops to miniature exhibitions extending out of The Coro and into the town, it’s a festival that genuinely lives and breaths the mantra that good art should be available and affordable for everyone.

As well as being able to browse, talk, and buy from the likes of Printfest's headline artists - Printmaker of the Year 2022 Anita Klein and Printmakers’ Printmaker Helen Murgatroyd - you can vote for your favourite artist, purchase your own printmaking supplies, refresh yourself with a drink and bite to eat, take home a memento in the form of the highly collectable Printfest catalogue, and much more.

A short note on safety

Your safety and comfort continues to be our top priority. Event capacities will be limited to maintain space in the auditorium, while all Coro staff and volunteers will continue to wear face coverings. Currently, as a mandatory condition of entry all audience members will need to wear facemasks, other than when having a drink, if you are medically exempt, or a child under the age of 12. We also encourage all visitors to  keep a safe distance from others, use hand sanitisers and wash hands regularly, and check in with the NHS Test and Trace app if able to do so.
