Artist and illustrator Nick Morley aka Linocutboy is a regular visiting tutor at Intra Arts, but through June we’re excited to host an exhibition of his wonderful large linocuts as well. The show runs from 3 – 30 June 2022 and is timed to coincide with Medway Print Festival.
Our print studio has a wide range of presses and printmaking equipment for paper and textiles. Used by a friendly community of printmakers it’s a great place for people from all over the South East to work on print projects. The studio can also be hired by the day for intaglio, silkscreen or relief printing for groups.
