For over 20 years Printfest has championed printmakers and the original hand-made print by putting on a weekend festival at The Coro in Ulverston. The artist-led festival brings together over 40 of the best of the UK’s printmakers and over 2,000 visitors, who get the chance to talk to the artists and find out more about printmaking.

The Printfest 2023 headline artists are Printmaker of the Year Hilary Paynter and Printmakers’ Printmaker Gail Mason, both extraordinary artists.

Over the weekend Printfest run printmaking workshops with Cumbria Printmakers, are involved with creatives and creative venues through Ulverston Fringe, and are working with local schools to inspire young people with printmaking. Visitors can take time in the café at The Coro and browse the Printfest catalogue.

Printfest offers a little bit of red carpet treatment for Friends of Printfest. It is supported by our main sponsor Canter Holland and is grateful for the funding it secures. Artists are supported through an award programme working with many local sponsors. Printfest takes place on the early spring bank holiday.
