Printfest is dedicated to the exhibition and sale of contemporary hand-made prints, it is a rare opportunity for some of the best of the UK’s printmakers to gather under one roof, to share practice and learn from each other.

Printfest offers visitors a lovely experience of making an artwork purchase. You get to talk to the artist, hear the story behind that piece of work and find out more about printmaking. The artist gets to hear why you have responded to it as a visitor.

Printfest was founded in 2001 and is the UK’s foremost artist-led printmaking festival. The Printfest weekend is held each early May bank holiday at the Coronation Hall in the festival town of Ulverston, Cumbria.
